Hi,
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 :)
Thks

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
