Not knowing what software you're talking about, we'd just be guessing.

E.g.

Some programs have an option to open in the same space it was last in. If, for some reason, the program got dragged offscreen (out of sight, out of mind) and the compter was shutdown, it'd start up offscreen until dragged into sight.

Of course, your program may not have this option, in which case I've wasted my time typing a reply.

Please give at least the minimum information to help us help you.

Please let us know if you found someone's advice to be helpful.

From what you have said there is no real reason to suspect a virus or similar. At a glance your unrequested log didn't show up anything particularly bad.

We need to know what program you are talking about - It has been asked twice.

I understand now - that is very unusual.

When you reopen one of those programs does it appear minimised in the taskbar at the bottom?

When you close one of the programs with the corner X does it still appear in task manager?

One option would be to run System Restore but as it started quite a while ago you may no longer have a restore point dated before it first happened.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks for the information.

There are still some unanswered questions in my #10 which might help our understanding.

If this only happens after the computer has been on for a period of time it could be overheating. In which case ensure all vents are clear of dust. It could need cleaning inside too (heat sinks, fans etc) but with a laptop that might not be so easy to do.

If the problems occur almost immediately after a "cold" start then it is less likely to be overheating. In which case, as you are now mentioning several issues, the only thing I can suggest is System Restore. You would need to have an idea when these issues started to happen and an appropriate restore point available. There is also a Windows Repair option if you have an XP CD.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
