The perfect solution

Good news... there's a perfect solution to your problem! It'scalled a Notification-window and you can find it in the VBPowerpack(it's an assembly of form-controls and more). The notification-window appears on the bottom-right of your screen and dissappears after a few seconds, just like the nortonAV notifications. The user can freely continue with hiswork while the control is displayed. The only problem isthat I lost the address but you can find it via Google veryeasily. Just search for VBPowerpack.http://www.gotdotnet.com/Community/Workspaces/workspace.aspx?id=167542e0-e435-4585-ae4f-c111fe60ed58
