    windows explorer shifts partly offscreen

    When I open Windows explorer to see my computers folders and files, it is okay in the middle view (not minimized, not maximized) but if I put it up to maximize, it shifts down and to the right so the bottom and right edge are off the screen and I cannot access the minimize and close buttons in the top right hand corner. It has only just started doing this and I cannot drag it back up where it belongs with the bar at the top.

    How can I get it moved back where it should be? <img src=/S/igiveup.gif border=0 alt=igiveup width=31 height=23>

    Is it only explorer that is doing this? - or other applications when maximised?

    Now you've got me wondering about viruses.

    One of my users has this problem with IE4.?. In "restore" mode I can move the windows around the screen, in "maximised" mode both the right and bottom edges are "off screen". <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Will check his AV s/w and get back!

    <img src=/S/cauldron.gif border=0 alt=cauldron width=20 height=20>Okay, the computer gods are smiling on me today -- I downloaded a bunch of updates from Windows so I would have the latest patches, ran scan which came up "okay," got to thinking about trying to kill out a program called twofer, which puts up side by side explorer screens (unmaximized and they where working fine), since I hardly ever use it, and also got to thinking of trying to reinstall explorer off our network. In the process of trying to find explorer on the network, I instead managed, rather accidently, to reinstall twofer instead. And low and behold, explorer is suddenly okay!
