Windows XP being the most user friendly OS available, can turn out to be a pain in the butt at times. It is bundled with thousands of features that many are still not aware of, one of them is the ability to easily fix minor annoyances without re-installing the OS.
Lets face facts. Many are switching to Opensource operating systems like Ubuntu, openSUSE, Fedora, e.t.c. But, for now, even though Windows XP irritates at times, it’s the most flexible and user friendly OS available. It’s very boring and a time wasting experience to troublshoot every annoyance manually, only to save the burden of re-installing the OS. Some of them can be fixed manually with ease, but some are hard to. For example, if the tooltip info that you get while you hover the cursor over the taskbar/tray icons, hides behind the taskbar, you can easily fix it with a ToolTip Fixer.
