Re: Dial-up how to show connection activity?
Tomlives 2000 your arrogant reply supposes too much. From the first I did
right click the icon in the system tray and I did select "turn on activity
animation" and it doesn't work. Perhaps if you would get YOUR head out of
YOUR ass you would see that I am not the only one reporting that the "turn
on activity animation" option does not work. I have tried it over and over
and it just doesn't work. Perhaps yours "works very very good" but mine does
not work at all no matter how many times I try to turn the activity
animation on. Now that we have your arrogant reply behind us, Microsoft is
there any way to fix this? Please let me know. Thank you.
