Minimized programs are opened up into the background


If i minimize all my programs and see my background on desktop. If i open up internet explorer, all the other programs minimized will open up in the background! It's really anoying...What could the problem be?

I use 1920x1080 in desktop and in games for example.
And if i play Heroes of Newerth and i alt-tab, IE appears in the background of Heroes of Newerth and i can still see it beeing in the background. I tried differented "fullscreen/windowed mode" stuff there, but no difference.
