    Task bar with autohide covers system tray popup messages

    I use auto hide for my task bar (one line high) at the bottom of the screen.
    When I raise the task bar and then mouse-over icons in the system tray,
    their ballow message is hidden behind the task bar/tray. Is there any way to
    make Windows realize the ballons have to be higher?

    This is an ongoing problem with XP as far as I know their is no fix
    except for a reboot.

    NeoSmart Technologies has created a (free) fix for the infamous bug,
    present in all versions of Windows from XP downward, where tooltips
    appear below/behind the taskbar making it impossible to read what they
    say and requiring you to reboot or log off to reset them to their
    default behavior.

    ToolTipFixer is a free patch that addresses this issue, ensuring that
    tooltips that show up when you hover over an icon in the tray appear
    _above_ the taskbar, putting an end to this pesky bug.

    ToolTipFixer is 100% free (and no spyware/malware/etc. either).

    This is a documented bug in Windows, here's the link to the
    Knowledgebase article on the topic (marked as no solutions available):

    Not working

    I have tried to install the Tooltipfixer but it comes up with "The application failed to initialise" during install. It completes though and says it is installed but it doesn`t work. Pity.

    I'm using it on a few of my PCs. This is not a standard application
    but a Windows "service."
