I just installed some new windows updates last night on my laptop, and this morning when I turned it back on, my Japanese language bar was moved to the left hand side of the toolbar, and any window I open also goes to the left-hand side of the screen. Whenever I got on the internet, the minimized window also went to the left hand side of the toolbar. If I open another program and minimize that, it goes to the same spot, and I have to use the arrows for scrolling that appear to view all the different windows.

I got the language bar back to the right side of the screen, but I still can't re-arrange the windows so I can see everything at once.

Is this normal, or is there something wrong? :thumbsup:

My apologies, folks, it seems to have fixed itself. I went home and after restarting and hooking up to my wireless Internet there, things look like it's back to normal. Sorry if I caused any problems.

Happy holidays anyway! :thumbsup:
