Hi everyone - newbie poster here. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
I have a Windows XP machine with a roaming profile served by Windows Server 2007. Some time ago, the application switcher pop-up, which normally shows icons for all open applications, turned into a solid black rectangle (size adjusts, depending on the number of apps open). This is true no matter what machine I use with my profile so it would appear that it is some sort of corruption at the profile level.
This is a work machine and I do have an IT company that I could have look at this for me, but something like this would come with an hourly charge so I'd prefer to figure out how to solve it myself as it's certainly not mission critical, just annoying.
FYI, I would call my self an intermediary Windows user. I'm not a novice by any stretch (have been using PCs since the DOS days), but despite by computer geek leanings have never put the time into being true power user so please tailor any suggestions accordingly.
