Solved window automatically minimises

Specs: Windows XP
the active window automatically minimises to the background when mouse pointer moves away from inside of it leaving other open windows now in the foreground. In other words for window to be open the cursor has to be present within it on the screen.

Sure you don't have "Xmouse" turned on in TweakUI?:

Amazing! I have run various versions of Windows for years and only had this particular problem recently (but for too many weeks even so) I downloaded the "TweakUi" application and unchecked "Application follows mouse" and it seems to have cured the this problem. What I don't understand is how the settings got altered in the first place so that "application follows mouse" was happening.

Thanks greatly for all help in this.

Since TweakUI "safely" modifies registry entries, it's possible (but not probable) that something (or even someone) else modified those entries. Again, just speculating...

How would those settings be altered if I have only just downloaded "TweakUI" - would someone have had to have gone into the registry or can certain software downloads/processes make this change automatically?
Thanks for you continuing advice on this.

"...would someone have had to have gone into the registry or can certain software downloads/processes make this change automatically?"

Could really have happened either way. Or possibly a (albeit strange and nearly impossible) corruption of the registry which happened to turn out that way. The link below describes specifically what registry keys are changed:

Were there any other accounts on that machine, or had it ever been someone else's machine? In either case, someone would have consciously had to make the changes...
