    Scenario: Attempting to install a piece of software

    The Problem: A window Pops up (or flashes up and then away) so fast, that I can not read what it says.

    The Question: How can I see what that quickie window has got to say?

    Ive tried to use a video camera to catch what is flashing on the screen, but it happens so fast, that I only get part of a it, and its already greyed out so I cant even read it.

    How can I slow or stop my computer at whatever that window says so I can read it?

    Ive tried to Google this, but I dont know what to call it when you get:
    Some kinda Window "Blow-By"
    (stolen from my automotive background)

    Thank You

    Some types of installs will open quick windows if they need to for some reason. I have seen it a couple of times.

    But you might try the print screen button. I wound not think the pause button would have much effect.

    I would use Process Monitor from SysInternals. When your filters prevent recording of "normal" stuff, what's left should
    at least give u a clue on what it is...
