hai stefan, if i were to choose to show overlay only on explorer, does this
problem still exist?

well, me myself, prefer installing or upgrading program while i'm not doing
anything. its just stupid to mess with the system while your in the middle
of something. the same example is like trying to change brake oil of
motorcycle, while we were still riding on it.
