Good idea.

The first 32bit version should open and close in a second or so. It just starts the 64bit version. The test proposed should let us know if some part of that process is broken.

A Guy:

I did a little experimenting even before reading your comments.

If I open a browser window from the internet icon on my desktop, it opens behind.

If I open a website for which I have a shortcut on the desktop, it opens behind.

If I open a browser window from the internet icon on my task bar or from the start menu, it opens on top.

If I open a browser window and minimize it to the task bar then future browser windows open on top.

I would try creating new shortcuts for your desktop (using iexplore.exe in program files (x86), or your pinned taskbar shortcut). Use that and see if it opens in front. If so, then recreate your saved desktop shortcuts to web sites via the new IE desktop shortcut. A Guy
