Once application minimizes I have to end task to close it.

Posted on 2011-03-24
Last Modified: 2012-06-22
I am using a Windows 7 laptop.  On one specific application (An no others) when I minimize the application I cannot then maximize it again.  IT runs in the background without me being able to access it.  If i never minimize it then I can use the application normally without any problems.

I have already contacted the developer and their user forum and everyone seems to agree it is a problem on my end and not with their application. Are there any reasons why an application would hide itself once minimized?  And why only one of my applications and not all of them?

Try uninstalling the norton antivirus software if you have it and test if it works.
