More Than One Way to Skin a Polecat

Vista has this annoying "Program Countdown Status" window that will keep popping up every few minutes unless you agree to run the implied program. Gives you helpful info like, "This program will run in 8:00 HOURS. 7 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds" and so on...

Because it is a network program you are powerless to dismiss it.

Because in less than five minutes there it will be. In your face counting down like some Micro$oft Doomsday Clock.

Unless... Unless you leave the window OPEN and running on your desktop. Only then do the damned annoying popup balloons stop popping up.

This helpful hint brought to you by the League of Anti-windoze VISTA Users.
