When opening an application eg word in XP the quick launch opens a white window which covers the entire desktop.I can drag this down the bottom so that it is out of view but it is still open.I have tried going to desktop in properties & deleting the default web page & unlocking the taskbar.This has not helped.Any ideas most appreciated

    I would run adaware and spybot.  Let them do their work.  See if they kill any spyware/malware.

    see if that fixes the issue and get back w/us.

    Have you checked the taskbar to see what was being open or what process could be running to have opened it.

    is it only in word? try to repair it : help section, analyse and repair
    for office, do it from the add/remove software section
    if you suspect malware, i suggest to run ALL these, updated :
         adaware :
         Spybot :                                                               online scan for trojans                                   download                                check the log
