You do!

Only one (re)install, though? I can beat that my friend...

Around 2 weeks ago I decided to reinstall just out of good practice. Was running fine for a week. I turned my [Lenovo] PC on one morning, and both the WiFi and Ethernet were missing from Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections. Tried removing and re-installing the drivers, registry cleanup, alternate local user, Windows' "Troubleshoot problems" feature, etc. After a good few hours of playing around -- nothing. A clean install fixed it fortunately. Honestly, I didn't mind. Windows 10 formats and reloads pretty damn quickly. If this were XP, that would be 1 1/2 - 2 hours of my day down the drain!

Those manufacturer supplied copies of Windows from Toshiba, HP, etc. are the WORST -- the amount of crap they bundle is unreal. In this instance I didn't have this issue thanks to the built-in reset W10 feature.

To update: I started using this fix instead a while back which has worked flawlessly:

Quote:The easiest way to fix the alt tab bug is by making a shortcut to the game executable.

Steps:

1. Rename the original "gta_sa.exe" to "gta.exe" or something else. The name can be anything.
2. Run the command prompt(cmd.exe) as administrator.
3. Use the mklink command to create a shortcut. mklink "directory\gta_sa.exe" "directory\gta.exe". Replace directory with the full directory to where your game is. Also change "gta.exe" if needed if you named it something else.
4. Run samp.exe as administrator.
