well, do you know what make and model of video card you are using?
what do you mean the screen is shrinking into the taskbar exactly?

Robert, it would appear that it is your turn to have missed a big hint. :thumbsup:

The Intel® GMA X3000 is the fourth generation of Intel Integrated Graphics.


wubzy, would you please tell us what the make and model of your computer is, and if is a custom build the make and model of the motherboard, the amount of RAM, and the make and model of the PSU.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You mean like an ALT-TAB command.
I would try run with a minimum amount of background processes before I even consider a hardware relevans.
If any at all, only a keyboard or mouse problem springs to mind.
I haven't heard of a driver problem ever of that nature.
Disconnet internet/Stop mail-client,ftp,bittorent whatever.
Close down av,firewall everything you don't need.
Maybe a sevice could cause this kind of erratic behaviour?

Just my cents. :thumbsup:

Run a virus/spyware scan
