    Hello DAL,
    I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 32. Recently I have came across a problem where I will open a program, any program, and then minimize the window to my task bar, then it won't open again. I have to restart the program and its getting really tedious :taz:. When I move my cursor over the program icon in the task bar. The usual preview window pops up but there isn't a X to close option and when I click on the preview window it just disappears without opening.
    I did a system restore but I still have the same issues. I have also scanned my PC for infections, and its clean. I had a automatic update from windows a couple days ago. Perhaps that's the problem?

    Thanks for your time and advice,

    Have you tried right clicking on the preview window, and clicking restore?

    Lets use Firefox as an example. In the right click options I have 3 choices.

    Mozilla firefox (opens a new Firefox window)
    Unpin from the taskbar
    Close window

    No restore option.

    Oh my bad I should have posted my fix a long time ago. I used Tune up Utilities 09, when I opened the program it stated my Windows.....Windows weren't functioning properly and I ran a fix. So all is good.
