    There is a very annoying behavior on my computer. The issue is that when I
    open a window at times it minimizes to the bottom task bar. An example is
    while composing an e-mail then moving the mouse to send the window might
    collapse and one think that the message was sent, however later on you see
    the collapse window in the bottom or two days later you see your e-mail in
    your draft folder. Other windows will collapse in other program as well.
    Currently in the appearance settings are set to Vista Aero. I would
    appreciate feedback in order to solve this annoying phenomena!

    i am getting the same problem, its very annoying. mine happens when i click
    on the scroll bar on any links or just by simply clicking on any part of the
    page, it happens with every single window i have open so i know its not
    connected to any of the programs im running.

    its kind of conforting to know someone else is having this problem, but its
    still worrying when the manufaturers and microsoft wont help you or dont know
    whats causing it.

    Its only a comfort to know you're not losing your mind because very
    expensive software programs aren't supposed to work so badly with each new

    To your knowledge (or anyone's reading) or experience, are there any
    microsoft employees that care to read these questions, or do i need to go
    elsewhere for that. It sure is hard to get them to respond.

    Gates should forgo one of his many billions of dollars and give it to the
    company to run a better help service for the many customers that make him
    rich - especially when his product only serves to give people headaches, not
    is so unexpectedly bad, especially when win xp worked so great and made me
    believe windows finally got their stuff together. I've never had so many
    crashes since win Me and 64mb of ram. My prior toshiba laptop NEVER crashed
    in the 4 years it lasted, but the hp laptop with 1gig of ram, that i finally
    returned to try out another toshiba, crashed every day. Crossing my fingers
    with this more expensive toshiba and hoping my time wasted by vista is my
    only problem now.

    Check your drivers or mouse software.
    What software isn't working? Vista? It works here with no problems at
    all but then I built the PC myself rather than go to a store which
    installs all manner of junk and doesn't set-up the OS very well.

    Microsoft employees do occasionally respond to the posts here but it
    isn't part of their job.
    If you are 'trying' laptops from a store I suggest you're going to a
    store which hasn't installed things properly, has installed junk or they
    haven't supplied you with the correct/latest drivers.

    Post back some more information such as what software doesn't work, what
    problems you're experiencing and what error messages you receive. Maybe
    then someone will be able to help you out.

    This was a Toshiba laptop touchpad settings issue, for the "tapping" control.

    You can configure it to do many different things and for some reason the
    shipping config had set the corners areas to min or max the screen by tapping
    in the right corners - also, the designated area sizes were set too large,
    so the likelihood of tapping a corner area was good. Designating the
    corners to do nothing, or some other function, as well as/or reducing the
    corner area sizes 'fixed' this problem.
    You were right about the mouse - they should have set tapping the corners to
    do no special functions, for new computers.
