I still haven't gotten it working. I take it it works fine for you?

I installed the latest driver from there, and now I can go to lower resolutions.

I restarted just to be sure and it didn't improve things any. Thanks though.

Does that require a restart to take effect? I don't have lag in any other video, but I will give it a shot.

comment Force Google search to require terms by default?
Yeah, what I said. If you click "cached" on the first link it will tell you that your words only appear in the links pointing to it.

comment What is a good alternative to Camtasia Studio (screen recording not required)?
Ah, well that complicates things some. I'd suggest adding that requirement to your question. You could probably still use Wink to create an SWF file and then maybe you could use some video converter to convert it from SWF to MP4.

Autologon is for older Windows version from before they added this feature proper. Have you tested it with Windows 7?

If Windows 7 is reporting it as incompatible, and VS2008 is compatible, then don't count on it working in the release.

My bad. Been looking at VS2008 so much I just assumed. I removed the VS2008 reference.

comment How can I mass rename files from the command line or using a 3rd party tool?
I figured this is the UI equivalent of a regular expression. It looks terrible, but it gets the job done.

comment Is there a RAR extractor (for multiple rar files like .r00 etc.) that will use all of my quad cores?
To divide decompression between threads you would need to give each thread its own data block. With a solid archive there can be only one data block. If solid is off then it might be an option.

The link GMail sent me are for cleaning up my bulk emailing. This is just individual emails, not bulk, so it completely doesn't apply.

comment How to tell if my domain is spam blacklisted?
Thanks, that was what I was looking for, any my domain was Not Found. I guess that is good, but now I need to figure out why I am bouncing.
