    When i boot my machine and have a few programs running such as mirc, IE, winamp, and aim in order for me to switch between programs i must minimize the program i am currently using or click my desktop icon and minimize to desktop again. any ideas on fixing this problem

    Thanks in advance

    XP problems...

    This is a legit copy of XP? If so, do you have any antivirus software installed, and if so, are your definitions up to date and have you performed a system scan lately?

    Do I understand your question right that clicking the taskbar buttons doesn't work when the windows are on the screen? Did you check whether any of the affected programs has a "always on top" setting? Does alt+tab work?

    Well from what I see in your System's Specs, this is a XP Corp version... Sooooooo it's not legit. :eek:

    Maybe it could be the OS??? :confused:

    Why don't you get a legit copy, reformat and install fresh. Then it will probably work correctly. :cool:


    You said it is legit... ??? It's a Corporate Edition. Hmmmmmm??? You own a company???


    Something you tweaked? If this problem just started, do a restore to a point before it (the problem) started. Then see if it works again or if the problem is still there.
