no, it is not hidden behind any other icon. The program completely vanishes. Another real problem is re-occuring: I can not enter text in Explorer, help, etc, etc. All screens appear normal but when I try to enter text, nothing happens. I have a devil of a job in trying to get things back to normal-the best effort seems to be internet tools/options/advanced/reset but this does not always work, As I write, things are normal but i do not know for how long.
