did you have to buy Microsoft Security Essentials ? or is it free
MSE is free;

Virus, Spyware & Malware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials

I also have malwarebytes and superantispyware on some of my machines, but I only run them "on demand".

Well, I would say that if it was misbehaving before, and it isn't now, that it is most probably fixed. Come back and tell us if it isn't.

The problem with a lot of malware is that you can remove the malware, but that doesn't automatically fix the damage it caused. Sometimes, if it is "only" spyware then removing it fixes the problems. In other cases it doesn't. You can try troubleshooting the actual problems now that the malware is gone, but often the only satisfactory solution is a new install.

"stay on top" is a function of windows
short of a FULL re install I have no idea how to fix it

win7 mesed up the system restore thing that was so nice in XP
unless you notess there is a problem within a day or to it is just usless
in XP we could go back a month if we wanted in win7 we just get a few days

Indeed, I am aware that "Stay on top" is a built in function. But there is no way of knowing what that malware affected.

I don't use system restore, or the built in backup. They have caused me problems. I use images. If anything goes wrong, I just restore the last good image.

If it is just a "System malfunction" of some sort, then using another program to "Force" the "Stay on top" may work.

You can try these if you are so inclined;

Filebox eXtender download

http://www.moo0.com/software/WindowMenuPlus/

This adds functionality to the menu you get when you right click on the title bar of any window:

hmmmmm
im not sure if that would work on the dok as it's not like most programs (running with a thingy in the botom task bar to right click on)
it had a drop menu on it but it's one from it's own programming im not sure if another program could add anything to it

should work ok with the vid's though
I used to use WinPins a lot but it wont work with win7
will be nice to get it replaced

The Moo0 Window Menu Plus works on everything I have tried it on, although some items may be greyed out on special software. I like it because it is extremely useful, very unobtrusive, ( I don't want 799 buttons added to anything at all, nor do I want anything blinking and flashing! ), and it gives me a lot more useful functions than any other similar software I have tried.

Nothing should get corrupted. Windows 7 is completely different to XP, and some of the things that were done in XP are now either superfluous, or downright dangerous in Windows 7.

There are various ways and means of checking things, it depends what you want to check.

Things like registry cleaners, various "optimisers" and stuff like that, will only cause you grief in Windows 7.
