    I'v encountered this problem with two computers now.
    While I'm running windows explorer, another screen pop up,
    kind of brown (i'm using default colors), which i can't get rid
    of without closing the explorer window.
    It's nothing but brown, i can see it in the taskbar, with no title, but cannot close it with a right click, when i try it just open it
    and override my taskbar even if always on top configured,
    and can't see it in the taskmanager.
    So I don't know what is it, how it appears and how to get rid
    of it without closing explorer.
    Don't look very clear, hope someone will understand :)

    This is usually because of a script calling on a create new window instance and sorta screwing up in the middle...get adaware from lavasoft and run it to make sure that you don't have any spyware running
