Never heard of such a problem. A shortcut to exiting a window is pressing Alt + F4 at the same time. That's just like clicking on the X.

BTW - do you have XP Professional Edition?

Cheat_DEcoder...

Quit all running programs.
Click Start, then Run, type msconfig in the Open box, and then click "Ok". Click the "Services" tab, and then click to select the "Hide All Microsoft Services" check box.

In the list of running services, determine if the following service is running...WINKxxx (where xxx is two to three random characters appended to the word WINK. For example, WINKAP, WINKZFU, or WINKNWK.)

If this service is listed, your computer may be infected with a variant of the W32.Klez worm virus and your best bet is the Malware Forum.

If the service is not listed, let us know and we'll look elsewhere for the problem.

No tabs.

Ignore the arrow at the top of the task manager.
