This is very bizarre. I'm just coming off a new installation of W7x64. Most of my programs are installed and seem to run fine. However today, for no apparent reason, I've run into an odd problem. When I launch a few of my programs, they start up but only show up in the toolbar. If I right-click them I have the normal options (<program name>, Pin this program to taskbar, Close window). However none of those options work, they don't respond. If I right-click on the thumbnail view "restore" is grayed out, and "minimize" and "close" also do nothing. Left-clicking the icon also does not restore it.
Launching Task Manager allows me to End their process. Or if I maximize the application, all I get is their titlebar at the top of the screen From there I can exit the program as well... but the title bar is the *only* visible part of their window. The programs list as "running" from within Task Manager.
The two programs that I've noticed this with so far are MozBackup (a lightweight app for backing up settings in Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird) and when I wanted to view an application's properties window from within Comodo Firewall.
None of these problems occur on my XP boot.
Has anyone heard of this before or have any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
