Wanted to see if any updates and keep this topic active.
I do not have AWM and I am getting exactly the same issues of Explorer having to restart whenever change it seems something on desktop and the 3 times thing when reboot. A more detailed description by many others is at http://forums.stardock.com/380097
I am not yet using pro just evaluating the non pro version, I like Fences but not the nuisance of all the Explorer restarts.
I am not going to do a Win 7 reinstall, its easier just to turn off Fences and never have the issue except when Fences running.
Since I don't have Pro I assume that is why there is no option in Impulse to verify program or what someone else suggseted on the other thread Impulse doesn't list Fences (or any) in My Software other than some "Free version available's." Impulse to me is just a nuisance it seems needed to get updates, but think I got it to stop nagging me.
I am a serious business user, I have no time or interest in TV and have never played any game - but I like Fences to help organize -
I also have 5 Samsung monitors all 22-24" But the issue seems to be common with Win 7 (I'm using 64 bit). My desktop is all on one so don't think that is any issue.
I think I recognize Stardock from way way back in my OS2 days and like many of the ideas. But I have no time or interest in having to a computer "geek" I just need things that work.
As I recall like 15-20? years ago I liked Stardock's things but never used due to all the problems getting it to work right. Back then OS/2 was far better than the first Windows which as I recall was about the only option vs DOS with no graphic GUI before the 1st Windows which was terrible vs stable and much better OS/2. Times have a changed for us old guys.
