Brian,

The instructions you provided, I followed them, but the tooltip is still
displayed correctly after release and no movement. Perhaps your video card
drivers need updating?

Thanks.

Cordy,

I am using the drivers that came with Windows XP - you would think they
would work - but then again there have been issues with Windows Media Player
9 Series and NVidia series graphics cards.

Brian,

"I am using the drivers that came with Windows XP - you would think they

9 Series and NVidia series graphics cards."

Just now the nVidia web servers are down at www.nvidia.com, once it get
fixed, try going there and click Windows XP under Downloads on the top of
the page.

Otherwise, try to go Windows Update, they should have some updated video
card drivers available for nVidia.

Regards.
