Things that should be top most window wonít stay that way

Itís really starting to tick me off

I use RocketDock to put an Icon bar at the top of my screen
Set to auto hide but be on top so easily accessible
In the past it worked fine but over the last few weeks itís been under stuff about 2/3 of the time
And itís getting worse nearly every time I want something from it I have to minimize every window on my screen to get at it

And over the last week or so iv noticed similar problems with windows Media player
Itís set to ďAlways show now playing on topĒ
It works for a while but as I work with other windows it will keep going under them from time to time

My bottom task bar is working fine though always on top as itís meant to be


I havenít a clue what could be causing this problem but itís really starting to annoy me

If you are getting unusual behaviour which you did not have before, then check that malware is not affecting your system.

Download the free version of this;

Malwarebytes

and run a FULL scan after updating the database.

If it finds anything, post the log here.

OK, you need to delete that malware of course, using the program. Then reboot your machine and see if that has solved the problems. I think you will find it has in this case.

You also need to install a good anti-malware program. I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials;

If you are connected directly to the internet, then you also need to use Windows Firewall.

The only one I personally recommend is MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials).

I also use one other for certain purposes, ( but not at the same time and not on the same machine(s), and that is Avira;

Avira AntiVir Personal - Free Antivirus

I wont use any others. Although I come across lots of different stuff all the time.

Although I have been known to make disparaging comments about some stuff, I usually prefer to avoid commenting.

Anybody can use whatever they wish, a lot depends on how much you know about a particular product, your experiences with it, and various other factors.


Did removing the malware with Malwarebytes solve your problems? Or have you not removed it yet in order to test your anti-virus program?

I havn't removed it yet as I want to see if AVG finds it
also some times just deleting files dosent fully remove it
they can re spon if not properly removed
if AVG finds it then maybe it will know about any other aspects of it

Yes, I thought that might be what you were trying. Please do let me know what happens.

Don't leave it too long with the malware though, They can cause damage which removing will not repair. The longer you leave it, the more damage they can cause.

Also, you wrote that you had these issues for a while, so it does not look as if your anti-virus program found them, if it had you would not have had the issues.

AVG didn't find them
and when I went to delete them one was allready gone
I had windows do a file name search but it found no other copies

my computer was working perfectly when I deleted them so no way of knowing if anything was fixed

did you have to buy Microsoft Security Essentials ? or is it free

MSE is free

And AVG is garbage still......

While no antivirus is perfect or will catch everything 100% of the time, AVG is still garbage.
