After getting updates for XP or maybe uninstalling a Explorer Taskbar I now
loose all windows when I minimise them. I see them shrink down to the Windows
Taskbar but then they disappear somewhere in the Quick Launch section. I have
tried changing taskbar properties and folder views to try and make them
visible. I know all windows minimised are still running because when I run
Task Manager they are all there.

Can anyone help please
