    Sorry to hear of your struggle and that nothing seems to fix it. Looks like a system restore is the only thing that will, but I know that's a PITA.

    I know it shouldn't be doing it and we like things are way, but in the light of it it's not the biggest problem. More like an inconvenience. A push of the WinKey get you back to start screen. That's the way I looked at it when I had the problem anyway.

    I suggest you run it for a while. Perhaps it'll work itself out. Software is strange sometimes that way.
