Hi! I'm using Windows XP, this problem started happening out of the blue recently. When I launch some programs (msn, ventrillo) nothing happens, but in the taskbar the program icon shows up likes its running, i can close the program using the taskbar, but nothing is on the screen. In msn i can sign in, and the main window comes up, but i conversation boxes do not, they only appear in the taskbar, any help would be awesome.(y)

If your right click them in the task bar and select Maximize. What happens?

nothing happens, you can't click maximize because ( my hypothesis at least) windows thinks the program is maximized, when u click minimize the restore button becomes active, but when I click that nothing happens either. Thx for the fast reply.
