Hi
The problem is that when I minimize a web page to the taskbar. When I come to maximize it again it dissapears, It only happens on web pages and not programs that I am using.

More details needed.

Does the application totally disapear from the task bar as well?
Or does it remain on the task bar but not display on the screen?

How are you minimizing?

How are you maximizing?

Sorry for the questions, but as you are the only one that can see what is happening, you have to spell it out so we can understand the exact nature of the problem.

Sounds like a problem in Windows Explorer, that controls these matters.

The first thing to try is a System File Check.

Start - Run - type "SFC /scannow" and Enter
Do not type the " quotes ", and make sure there is a space between "SFC" and "/scannow". Upper or lower case is OK.

If you enter it right, a dialogue window appears and gives progress. Takes a few minutes, and it will replace any damaged system files.
