I am using Windows XP Home Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 3.
About a month a go, I noticed that the close button (the little red "x") in the top right hand corner of my windows had been disabled. I scanned for viruses, and none were found, so I figured that it had just been a setting that was changed inadvertently. No big deal, since Alt-F4 still closes windows. However, yesterday, when I logged on, things have changed dramatically. Now, not only is the close button disabled in all windows, but the minimize and maximize buttons are non-functional, and I am unable to move any windows, or re-size them using the arrows. The visual settings have reverted to Windows Classic View, and the Windows XP View is no longer an option.
The only thing that I have done to the system before this happened was reinstall Java, and Adobe Flash, due to some Flash applications not loading correctly.
Assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated, since viewing all websites using a web-browser that only covers 1/3 of my screen is a daunting task.
