Windows 7: Invisible windows?

Invisible windows?

NOTE: I couldn't really find a good sub-forum to post this to. If there is a better sub-forum for this, please move it to there.

This is a problem that has been plaguing me for a while, notably on Core Temp and some pop-up windows on Google Chrome.

What would happen is, for example, I'd go to a livestream channel page and try to pop-out the chat. The window would do the maximizing animation (titlebar moving to the top of the screen) but there'd be no window. Minimizing and restoring the window would prove the same results. Other pop-ups, such as popping out the actual stream would load a window perfectly.

This problem also replicates itself with the program Core Temp. Reinstalling both programs fixed the problem temporarily.

Any ideas?

I've got a rough idea what you mean, but unfortunately no real ideas how to correct it.

With Core Temp, have you tried clicking on the systray instance to see if it pops back up normally?

After re-installing, the problem re-occurs only once you use the livestream chat/pop-out page? - Does the pop-out have any settings etc you can go through?
