Compatibility issues with Vista SnippingTool

Recently upgraded to dual-monitor setup. DisplayFusion working perfectly; however, seems to be an incompatibility with Windows Vista's Snipping Tool (which I use frequently). After reboot, Snipping Tool works as it should ... but if I change a wallpaper on either monitor, all future attempts to open SnippingTool result in this ...... ERROR: The Snipping Tool is not working on your computer right now. Restart your computer, and then try again. If the problem persists, contact your system administrator. [OK]

Once I reboot, SnippingTool functionality returns.

I'm the only one using this computer; I have all necessary Administrator privileges, etc.

Anybody else? Any thoughts?

Thanks....

I would also try the snipping tools forums if they have one, it sounds like an issue with that rather than DisplayFusion. Perhaps another member here has experienced soemthing similar and can help, I would not know. Good luck to you though.

CAn I ask what the tool does so I can get an Idea of what its using?

Does the error occur when you change the wallpaper using the Windows wallpaper settings instead of DisplayFusion?

I'm marking this thread as complete unless someone can provide more information.
