I am a technician who uses HP's website everyday and constantly have many open Internet Explorer windows open. When multiple windows are open and I try to minimize or maximize from the Windows Taskbar at the bottom, the blue bar of the active window makes the motion to the top and the window IS min/maximized, but it does not show up overtop of the other, already open windows, and instead I have to minimize EVERY open window to find it. This happens most frequently when using Outlook 2003 SP2. I know this isn't a high priority, but I fear I may be infected even though all system scans show no viruses/trojans.

Hi deeJslowface

Why don't you use Mozilla Firefox for a far superior browsing experience. Compared to IE it's faster, more secure, it's appearance can be changed to suit your mood and best of all........tabbed browsing. No more opening or closing windows , just click on the open tab to view the page you want.

If you are a faithful IE user,you will be glad to know that IE 7 has the Tabbed Browsing feature that Firefox users love so much.

I do not recommend updating to IE7 just yet as it is still in it's Beta form. I have had bad experiences with it.

Thanx for clarifying that AF,very important point. :thumbsup:
When writing that post,I was assuming deeJslowface would like this information for the future, when IE 6 is updated and IE 7 becomes available to the general public.
