Windows 7: View source opens behind browser

The windows 7 box has all kinds of stuff on it, but the server is a fresh HP Proliant with only Office 2007 and now Adobe 9. Both are 64-bit. I've attached both msconfigs.

I've disabled tabs all together which didn't change anything. I've messed with several taskbar options which did not help either... weird

ron, are you using the default editor for IE8 or notepad? When I chage the editor to notepad (using F12, developer tools), it opens up correctly in front and stays in front. I wonder if the behavior for the default editor can be changed??? Any ideas?

Ah, excellent find my friend! My notepad when called upon in any fashion is setup to open Notepad2, even the jumplists in the taskbar. I can live with this.
Thanks

The default View Source Editor has changed in Internet Explorer 8 - The Winhelponline Blog

I've got the developer tools set for "View Source = default viewer"; however under the page toolbar item it says "Edit with Notepad".

Edit with Notepad = Notepad (written in application space in title bar)
View Source = Original Source (written in application space in title bar)

"Original Source" appears to be a unique viewer for IE8 source; for example:
1) it has a small "e" instead of a notepad icon
2) applcation is called "Original Source" vs. "Notepad"
3) it had a grey bar down the left side
4) the list of options for each menu bar item are slightly different
5) there is no menu bar item called "help"
