Weird Windows XP behaviour
Posted on 2004-04-27
I don't have a lot to give you here...I'm just hoping that someone has seen something like this before.
I'm using Windows XP Pro with Office 2003. Every now and then the title bar for one of my open programs will begin flashing (the same way they do when an action occurs in a non-acitve window). However, when I click on that program/window, the window/title bar continues to flash. It will also randomly miniize itself, restore itself, or restore down. While this problem seems to happen to randomly to any active window I might have open, however it seems that Microsoft Outlook is the program most commonly affected.
This occurs quite consistenly...it'll occur on and off for a half hour or so and then just go away for hours or days at a time.
I've used adaware and spybot to hunt down any malware and scanned for viruses, just hoping if anyone has any other ideas.
Thanks for your help,
