Q14. Why the Image booster System tray Icon is not visible in Win7 when we install the Image Booster and Run the same.
System tray icon has been taken quite seriously in windows 7, the windows 7 taskbar has been designed keeping in mind that system tray icons of the various third party applications should not occupy the task bar space. So, by default any program which has a system tray icon is hidden by default in windows 7 system tray.
In order to show a system tray icon in the task bar here is how you can set it to show. Take your mouse over the arrow pointing vertically upwards, you can see the text saying show hidden icons. click the arrow pointing upwards on the windows 7 taskbar, and click the customize text. After clicking customize it will open up action center where you can show the icon and notifications of a program. For ImageBooster to show the system tray icon, select the option from the drop down saying Show icon and notifications and click ok button at the bottom. That's it Done,

Q17. Why bubble message “Imagebooster found video” is not shown sometimes?
This behavior comes up when the Imagebooster drivers for detecting the video and other background applications lock the system resource.
This may be due to the heavy CPU and GPU usage in the background. Due to this reason sometimes this bubble message is not shown to the user.
Q18. Why Imagebooster screen was stopped, when user mouse click desktop area?
When the image booster dialog is running in the High/med mode it has to be the Topmost dialog on all the applications running on desktop to process the GPU.
So if user clicks on any other application running on the desktop it remains on the Top and Video rendering runs fine. But if user clicks on the blank area of the desktop as it has got highest preference over other applications, our GPU dialog goes to Background and the video is paused to start it again user can click on the video again.
