    If there's a difference of clarity from a monitor to a TV then the only reasons would be either a crappy quality monitor...or it not set to its default resolution. The latter is pretty essential on an LCD...;)

    Jafo replied to a thread Piglets porter in FSX General Discussion
    Only a couple of emails to and fro when I was doing all those paints for the Avenger II. Virtually the whole plane was on one BMP so it paid to make it the highest res possible...which I did. Very few painting anomalies in the format too. Being a machine that was never put into service meant everything was a 'what-if' which meant the sky's the limit with paint vers...;)

    Look into your list of updates....it will be one of them. Uninstall one at a time until it is solved. ...and turn off 'install updates automatically'....make it ask you first...;) BTW....IE 10 and 11 BOTH used to crash my FSX for quite a while...so I stayed with 9 until well after 11 came out...;)

    Ah....nLite ...yet another blast from the past. My 'skinning' days started at a time when I even know who first skinned Winamp ...and LS.com and LS.net were a start... #skinnerz on efnet ... LoneRunnr's Litestep that never got out of a 'beta'....then Customize.org....skinz.org ....then ultimately Wincustomize.com - where I Admin 15 years later. Messing with shells...designing GUIs....all fun until someone gets hurt. Litestep used to lose track of a dll and cause windows to pop up the error 'You must reinstall Windows' that scared the pants off many.... it was fun times...;)

    I still have that on a VM somewhere....though at the time my main weapon of choice was Litestep...avoiding explorer.exe entirely...;)

    Win 8 was such a dog GUI-wise that no amount of cheap offers or even a little back-pedalling with 8.1 was enough to see an acceptable take-up market share they needed to distance themselves from it and skipped '9' in favour of something that looked distantly remote '10'. Stardock made quite a 'handy profit' marketing Start8 and ModernMix - 2 proggies that restored NORMAL win 7 functionality to the OS...and will see more of the same with 10. 8 was a camel of an interface . Heads rolled over it. Norton has improved its performance since the days of 2003 but I'll still avoid it like the plague. Still on XP then...I moved on to Bitdefender...which was significantly superior to the current NAV but they were a bit too slow to make it compatible with 7 so at that point I moved to...

    Norton AV is famous for not working even when it's claimed to. I dumped all things Norton a decade ago when it successfully shut down the BITS service and prevented it from restarting. If you don't know what that is it's 'slightly' important - ie. without it you're mostly screwed. The 'cure' was quite a bit more complicated than just thumbing one's nose at NAV.....

    I'm still hanging out for some more details from Matt that are coming....and then I'll upload all of these here. Being hi-res they really benefit from his note details . My 'task' is to make the general painting at least half as good as what he's produced...;)
