I've searched high and low for an answer and hopefully someone here can help me?! When I have two or three windows open at the same time and I want to switch windows, when I click on the bottom taskbar to open the other window it doesn't open and just flashes orange. I have to minimize the current screen so I can view the other window. It never used to do this, I'm trying to figure out what the heck I must have done to get it stuck like this. :tazz:
Anyway, if anyone could advise me, that would be great! Thanks!

;)

woah!!! I've heard about that before, looks like a worm infection. It LOOKS like a worm infection. You might want to shut down Explorer in Taskmanager, you can summon that by CTRL+ALT+DEL and go to Processes. Then delete the Explorer.exe with a COMPUTER on it, not a MAP!!!. Then ask the same explorer from a friend who you are sure does NOT have spyware or other malware. If you don't trust this at all (I can believe you wouldn't) go to this:

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go! :tazz: I'm kool808.

First and foremost DO NOT delete your Explorer.exe that is your very essential program needed to run your OS, if you delete that then you will not be able to reboot successfully.

* Go to Start > Control Panel
* go to Apperance and Themes
* go to Folder Options > General Tab
* under the browse folder as follows, click open each folder in its own window
* confirm with OK

Hey Kool, thanks for the reply. I don't have "appearance & themes" within my control panel :tazz: I did a search on the c: drive and nothing came up. I'm using Win XP so what now?

I'm sure glad I didn't follow that clowns response and delete explorer. I knew something was fishy when I saw he joined May 31st . sheesh...what an eeediot....

upon the control panel you may switch it from the classic view to categories view, its located at the upper left.

you have also option 2:
Go to My Computer
then from the above menu bar, select Tools > Folder Options > General Tab >
* under the browse folder as follows, click open each folder in its own window
* confirm with OK
