Is it a coincidence that ITV2 were showing "Tomorrow Never Dies" last night where something similar happens ?

Developer2: How about move the minimise, maximize and close buttons to the left-hand corner and change their order ?

Switch off network adapter when uncompressing for upgrade to work

If you start the upgrade, when the message comes up about uncompressing the files, disable the network adapter in the PC (or switch off the wireless if using a laptop), this skips the activation check and the upgrade installs.

I tested this last night and it worked fine on my iPhone 3G.
