Windows 7: Pop-ups go behind active screen-

Again, new window/popup opens behind active window

Perused through many threads mentioning this irritating problem without any clear cut solution. I keep missing a pop up that asks for some additional info or the next step in a program. It is always hidden behind the active window! Could someone help this old bloke?

Mine does the same from time to time, but not constantly. Normally, I have a flashing icon on the taskbar that lets me know something is needing attention. Is this not the case with yours?

Mine too and I would have to say this is normal since I've seen it on various other setups as well. I'm amazed at how quick the folks here at Seven will freely give the advice to run SFC, System Restore or a Repair Install when it's not needed.

Yes it does show up in the task bar but I keep forgetting to look there! Quite annoying for me.

Black screen, cursor active before login screen.
Apologies if this is in the wrong section. I have a Dell Inspiron 1750, and the owner said that his son installed BearShare and it's been giving him complications. He told me it sometimes freezes when he tries to start the computer, and has to give it a hard shut down. I (hopefully) removed...
