I dual-boot Windows 7 and Windows XP. I still use Windows XP for some old software, but I never allow it to go online - the ethernet drivers are disabled in case I forget to power off the cable modem.
Probably not long after I first used Windows XP, I noticed a minor bug in the start menu handling. Pinned items can be dragged and dropped to re-order them, but when you drop them, they drop in the wrong out-by-one position - one position up from where the mouse is aimed. The drop-line shows in the correct place where you'd expect it, but when you release the mouse button, the item drops in an out-by-one position.
This bug has always fixed itself in the past. I thought maybe the it was due to me installing from a prior-to-any-service-packs disk, and maybe the fix gets fixed by Windows Update. Except that now it doesn't, because I don't let Windows XP go online and therefore Windows Update isn't getting run. I install service pack 3, but this doesn't seem to fix the issue.
Since it's a minor issue, I've mostly just worked around it or ignored it, but I'd really like a fix for this if possible. It seems daft to put up with a bug that had a fix probably before even SP1 was released.
For example is there a hotfix I could download now which for some bizarre reason Microsoft never included in a service pack?
