Unfortunately not. I have tried all the usual suspects but to no avail.
I am sure there is some quirky XP setting/button combo that I need to do to get things right but I am at a loss as to what it is?
I am now thinking that the only option left is 'Fhuising's' (thanks for the advice).
My screen is doing something weird - when you have a window open and you drag it around moving partially 'off screen' - when it has been on the bottom of the screen and you drag it back up, a black 'paint' effect appears from a section 'off' screen, making me think that something is amiss!??
