Hi

Do you have more than one monitor hooked up to your computer or did you have more than one recently?

The reason I ask is that this is a common reason for some Windows to open off-screen where you can not see them.

Here is a trick that helps if that is the case.

Follow these steps carefully because you are doing it blindly.

Right click your taskbar and open TASK MANAGER by selecting START TASK MANAGER
Press these keys on your keyboard.
ALT
left arrow
down arrow
down arrow
enter
right arrow

now move your mouse to where you can see it and you should see your task manager window attached to your mouse pointer.

Let us know if this helps.

James

Don't be hard on yourself. I was driven to near madness the first time I had to figure that out :)
