Just another thing.

Did you try giving it a few more pixels in size?

And "No, it doesn't work the same in Vista." This and other areas are creating fine income for programmers.

Mine is a delphi application. I have created the forms with the specified size. When i run this application in Vista my form appears with scroll bars. For example if i check a radio button a new window appears with a few controls in it. In XP it is shown such tat I can view all the controls when the window appears. But in the case of Vista all the controls are not visible when the window appears. when we maximize the window these controls are seen fully. Even if i resize the window the next time again the same window will show only partial controls . How can we avoid this in Vista.How can i make my application view same as in XP.

My apps on Vista required me to give the dialog box a few more pixels.

If you feel this is a true Vista bug, try writing to ...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
