Are you kidding me? This thing is a nightmare....and VERY evil.

Whenever I try to play some of my games or go to full screen using DOSbox, this "attention whore" of a program wants to steal the focus thus resulting in my program I WANT to use to be minimized. If I try to maximize the program I want to use, the Bing Bar keeps on stealing the focus, so I have to exit the Bing Bar every time. I have even written MS on this matter and it was insultingly suggested I minimize the bar with a given illustration of the bar with the minimize button CIRCLED IN RED! I mean really. As if I didn't know how to minimize a window even though I'm running their stupid OS and software AND I've tried minimizing the Bing Bar to no avail. It STILL wants to keep itself in focus.

This is the WORST piece of counter-productive from MS yet.
