[Help] Pages opened from IE shortcuts "hidden".

Recommended Posts

Three times over the past fortnight this irritation has arisen. When I open a page from an IE shortcut, instead of becoming the visible, "front" screen it opens behind other open screens, be they Firefox, Win. Explorer, Wordpad, ... generated. This "hidden" screen still becomes the active screen.

This doesn't happen when separate instances of IE are opened, and thus far, the problem is not present after the system is next started. The OS is XP Pro SP2.

Any ideas as to the cause and a remedy would be appreciated.

Have you added any applications or made any program updates recently?

Thank you for your reply.

I haven't made any changes and as I said in my OP "the problem is not present after the system is next started".

So the problem is every other system restart, or did this just happen once?

As stated in my OP "Three times over the past fortnight this irritation has arisen" and "the problem is not present after the system is next started".
