win32 application stuck in full screen mode...

    hopefully someone will be able to help me.
    The problem? Every dos shell that gets invoked when I execute an application is displayed in full screen mode.
    If I do a pull right mouse on the DOS shell icon I can see that it's properties are not set to 'full screen' but to 'window mode'. In fact, double clicking on it opens a regular size DOS shell. But pretty much every win32 applications gets executed in full screen. This is very annoying because (problem number 2) my Securemote client spawns a process every minute or so that causes a DOS shell to be splashed on the screen in full window mode.
    Can anyone give a hand to resolve this? I'm thinking that somewhere in the registry there is the option to set the display properties of applications.
    Thank you,
    Andrea P.
