ran the repair function but it did not solve the issue ...I guess that a W7 corrupt setting is most probably the cause ... I will try a few more things and if not successful, will reinstall W7, as much as I'd hate to do that. (W10 installation just carried the problem over ... I thought that W10 was a totally new system, which evidently it is not :--((
yes, updates are set to "automatic" and seem to be complete. I may have found at least part of the problem: I reset a registry entry that showed a zero value (no idea why) to the original setting. I still experience "non-maximized" windows disappearing behind maximized ones, but they do no longer close entirely. I guess I was just lucky to have found this, quite by accident. Does anyone know of a utility that checks reg values?
