False positive and ironic that Reimage marks it as "bad"  :wink:

Also - how can I get this entry into my registry - why is it missing?

After taking a registry backup first.

You would need to create a new DWORD DelayedDesktopSwitchTimeout and set the value to 5

BUT Hold fire and let Boggin review my suggestion first....I bow to his superior knowledge.

I use a custm made background on dual monitors - never a problem
It's just a very neutral sandy / textures gray background that I created myself.

May be worth a quick try with an "image" instead?

@ KR & Boggin, apologies for butting in or your ongoing diagnosis  :shy:

I came across this earlier while searching for something else and wondered if perhaps this may be the issue? Do you use a solid colour desktop background?

For VLC, I have always found that resetting preferences solved most issues.

I don't use WMP 11, so can't offer any help there, but have you seen this? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/925704/when-i-try-to-use-windows-media-player-11--the-program-does-not-start

D610 Latitude by any chance  :wink:

I'm pretty sure, we need better email security ...

A good starting point would be not posting your own email address on an open forum  :rolleyes:

EDIT: It appears that your details were hacked and made public in a breach at Adobe in 2013, enter your email here to confirm....

Dunno Rick, maybe for people like you to repost what you consider suspect links on forums and to help them achieve their goal, whatever that may be. :rolleyes:

I doubt that someone in China is stupid enough to try and hack Alibaba...

That assumption would appear to be incorrect.....https://www.reuters.com/article/us-alibaba-cyber/hackers-attack-20-million-accounts-on-alibabas-taobao-shopping-site-idUSKCN0VD14X

Who is Fiddy :)

Fifty "Fiddy" Cent - An American rapper.

I think Rick was referring to the Chinese tech giant Tencent in this instance, his ire may be better directed to them elsewhere rather than here.

I don't know about the BSOD, it could be RAM influenced and simply removing and reseating the RAM fixed it.

Not worth putting any money into a graphics card for that machine, if the graphics work OK for day to day tasks, then it is fine.

Benchmarks are less important than how it works for you in the real world.

"Auto  tuned" I dont know what you mean....It is not a "tuning" tool it just reports on your installed hardware's performance capability.

your integrated graphics is highligted as the weak link in your system's performance, hence the low score ( max is 7.9).  Did you click on "?" for more information.

If you can find a really cheap/ free graphics card you may raise the score.....But again, do you really want to put any more money into this?

If you are no longer getting BSOD, then I'd say it is resolved.

Windows Experience Index will give a pass mark for your current hardware.

The P4 processor is over 13 years old, XP era, and single core. I would have thought that at least a Core 2 Duo was better for that motherboard and windows 7. But if it works for you, then fair enough I guess. I just hope that you did n't pay a lot for it, the money may have been better used put towards a newer machine.
