    That bug has been corrected, I think.

    Hmmm... I don't think so, but it can be "turned off" by disabling autoassert (or something like that) in the c drive preferences.
    Compilers:
    GCC on Red Hat 8.1 (Primary)
    GCC on Mac OS X 10.2.4 (Secondary)

    Others:
    MinGW on XP

    the other solution would be to boot up in dos, open the "startup" folder and remove the link in that folder


    [EDIT]

    That's if the screen saver start when you log into windows

    [/EDIT]

    That only works in very old versions of Windows, and comparing Windows 2000/XP with Windows 9x/Me is like comparing "The seventh seal" with "Decamerone".

    Yeah!! Who?

    Why? If you place a shortcut in the "startup" in WinXP int will also happen. Then in dos browse all the user accounts till you find the right "startup" folder and remove the shortcut

    #1 : Windows NT/XP*/2000 cannot enter console-mode w/o password

    #2 : Windows NT/XP*/2000 cannot enter GUI without password (removing screensaver is pointless)

    #3 : NTFS is access-controlled.

    *) Could be possible in XP Home edition, but it's easier to set up a windows password than putting the screensaver in the startmenu.

    the who!?!?!?
    I was studying film atm I wrote that. European postwar renaissance really takes over your brain.
    "The seventh seal" == A nice movie by Ingmar Bergman
    "Decameron" == An abysmally bad movie by Pier Paolo Pasolini

    Speaking of good movies on that era, have you seen Amarcord or The Conformist? Good flicks.
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    Ahh incorrect! I would not post it here (i'd have to dig it backup anyway), but there is a method on NT logins that can be used to launch Explore'r with full admin privlages, a kid in my HS did it one time and gave me the article off neworder.
