Here is a photo of the Heatsink-Fan component.

There are only 4 adjustments, and they are all on the corners of the black part (fan mould). They only allow me to remove and restore the component from the Motherboard.

There are no other adjustable parts.

So how could I separate the Heatsink from the Fan in future?

Also, there was a mouse relapse after I last posted.

So, I removed COMODO and Sandboxie and used pc for a few days successfully with no relapses.

Then I installed Sandboxie Plus (latest x64 version) and used a few days without relapse.

Then I installed COMODO and after a day and a half, there has been no relapse.

One of the main reasons I didn't want to upgrade Sandboxie was that it worked fine for 2 years without update.

And I find that the support forums for open-source can be less reliable sometimes.

I've emailed the Moderator for not letting a support thread I posted 3.5 days ago be showed publicly on https://forum.xanaso...?mode=post&f=14

Also, the forum keeps logging me out when I post.

I posted a support thread because the new system tray GUI requires a right-click to show sub-menu as it (to clear contents, launch browser), and doesn't allow me to see the sub-menu by hovering on it like I can with the legacy GUI.

I reread your first post about there being a wireless mouse.  Could some other device be transmitting nearby and interfering with the mouse?  Cell phone, Cordless telephone, neighbor's PC/router, fan etc?  You said the case fan was unreliable.  Perhaps when it runs it generates interference?


I can't really tell if there is a way to remove the fan from the heat sink.   Sort of looks like there may be tabs you could pry apart with a flat bladed screwdriver but I can't see for sure.   Do you have a part number for it?


The link after "...showed publicly on" just takes me to a login screen.  Probably need to take a sceenshot
