Minimized programs are opened up into the background


If i minimize all my programs and see my background on desktop. If i open up internet explorer, all the other programs minimized will open up in the background! It's really anoying...What could the problem be?

I use 1920x1080 in desktop and in games for example.
And if i play Heroes of Newerth and i alt-tab, IE appears in the background of Heroes of Newerth and i can still see it beeing in the background. I tried differented "fullscreen/windowed mode" stuff there, but no difference.

Minimized Programs and Resources
Does minimizing a program to the Task Bar and leaving it there for the day, using it off and on, use up more resources than we might suspect? I generally minimize Thunderbird and keep it open all day which makes it handy. Would it be wiser to close it after each use? Thank you.

Minimized programs icons missing
All of a sudden running programs that I have minimized no longer have an icon on the task bar so that I can open them up when needed. I have to go to the task manager to get to them. Not sure what I did but I can't seem to get them to display on the task bar again. Advice much appreciated.
