Programs forcing selves to top problem

Hello :-)

How do I keep programs from forcing themselves to the top over other programs? For example, I find it annoying when I'm doing something and Registry Mechanic suddenly appears on top when it finishes its scan or I'm playing Star Defender 2 and Netzero's software suddenly forces the game to minimize to tell me I just got kicked.

Take care :-)

TweakUI (google it). Option in there to tell applications not to steal focus.

But having said that, some programs don't listen anyway.

failing that, just stop doing so many things at once :tazz:

netzero's a big one for stealing focus. so is registry mechanic. if you have scheduled scans on registry mechanic, try to schedule it for when you're not using the comp so much

Hello :-)

I found and installed TweakUI (v2.1) no problem, Will be awhile before I get a chace to test it, but even if it doesn't stop some programs, something's better than nothing :-) Thanx!
