Chess Titans Bug

Chess is a wonderful game to sharpen the wits. Windows 7, like Vista, has a version called Chess Titans. If you’re looking to knock out some time, the game will keep you busy with 10 levels of difficulty.

The downside, though, is that the game gobbles up memory and if your laptop’s not that big on graphics, you may find Windows grind down to a crawl. On my Acer notebook, it eats up more than 100 MB of memory even with all the whistles and bells turned off.

And then, there’s this display bug:

I’m not sure if it’s universal, but on my machine, this happens with Chess Titans maximized and a notification message appears.

It’s almost funny, if it weren’t so d**n annoying.
