Basically I click task bar buttons and they just flash... no window comes up.... I have to WinKey+D every time before I click a task bar button to go to a different window.... (Server was just rebooted last night)

Any ideas?

I recommend reading this : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/169494

Otherwise what is it like when you kill explorer.exe and rerun it? Does the tasks then pop up accordingly or still sit behind?

Cheers
