All programs I run cannot be minimized with the minimize button. Only some programs will drop dialog box with right click over the minimize button to allow minimizing.
Seems to have happened after running LSPfix; tried running LSPfix again and get message stating "Winsock2 Registry Key " is missing.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi :huh:.

You might take a look at:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811259, some users with missing key have reported that this works.

Scroll down to Repairing Damaged Winsock2 at http://www.onecomputerguy.com/windowsxp_tips.htm.


That won't solve your windows problem...I suggest either a repair install or trying to run sfc /scannow command.
