    Cannot bring back IE6 instance (IE6)

    I download a Access 2003 database from the Access forum. After I extract the database from the zip file and run the database I cannot bring back IE6 from the task bar, I can run Outlook from the taskbar but not IE6.
    This happens intermittently, not all the time.

    Use Alt+Tab to see if there is a dialog hidden behind other windows, waiting to be closed. You can also try to minimize applications one by one (not all at once) to see if a dialog was hiding behind one of them.

    You may have better luck using right-click and Save Target As... rather than left-clicking attachments.

    I'll try that the next time it happens, it's amazing how much one forgets, I used to do that all the time in Windows 3.

    Excuse my ignorance, but:

    Right click on what?

    Left clicking attachments?

    That's interesting because after extracting it from the .zip file and saving it to disk, I can open the database days later and the problem is not there.

    Maybe it's what you say, as you save it from the email to disk then try to run it, I don't know, but it seems strange.
