    When I click on a link in a website that opens another IE window the button shows up in the taskbar but the actual window won't pop-up... I have to right-click the button in the taskbar and select maximize for it to pop-up... I've already restarted and already ran ad-aware... what else could be the cause of this?

    Try right clicking on the ie icon and selecting properites - shortcut, and see if it is set to open maximized

    After maximing the new window, try holding down ALT while clicking X to close the window. This is supposed to save the window position so that it opens up that way next time.

    Thanks, I figured it out... at one point someone(probably my brother) minimized an IE window all the way to a pixel and therefore I couldn't see it when it was supposed to be there... it's all fixed now =)
