Disappearing Buttons Minimize, Size, Close


I installed windows 7 64-bit version a few days ago and i have a problem with minimize, resize, close buttons. When i am opening the new window, browser etc. Buttons are visible, but when i am hover (in fact onmouseout event) they are disappearing. I didn't erase also any drivers, however i installed the newest nvidia graphics driver. It is still the same problem.

Minimize, Maximize And Close Button Disappears

For some reason the minimize, maximize and close buttons disappear on top of my windows. This is so for all applications. The buttons are not visible, but they still work. For instance, if i click in the top right corner of the application, the application will close.
 
I don't know what causing this. Sometimes it happens just after i started my pc. Sometimes it doesn't occur for over an hour. I've tried to detect the reason, but i wasn't able.
 
I've surfed the internet trying to find a solution, but couldn't find anything that works (they speak of nvidia drivers often, but there isn't a nvidia driver in my laptop. ) Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

Taskbar Buttons Not Combined

Windows 7 (64 bit) system, i have "always combine taskbar buttons" selected, but some programs show up more than once. For instance i have a program pinned to the taskbar but when i run it another button shows up for the program at the right end of the taskbar. I thought that shouldn't happen; certainly it doesn't happen for the windows apps i have on the taskbar (like ie or media player) - they only show up once whether the program is running or not. (I have a pic but didn't know how to post it; anyway i think it should be clear from description. )

How To Re-assign Function Of Mouse Buttons?

I have an intellimouse optical usb and ps/2 compatible. When on windows xp i was able to re-assign any mouse button to one of many functions, e.g cut, copy, paste, etc, etc. This was a standard feature of the mouse software, which was intellipoint 4 (i think), and i found it very useful. Using the same mouse on my new pc running windows 7, i cannot find this utility. Can anyone out there advise on how i can get this feature on windows 7 ?

I used it on a second mouse with only the three buttons active and one each assigned to cut, copy and paste. This avoids having to use two fingers for , and , which i find awkward and slow. Just hitting one button is much quicker when you use these three edits very frequently, as i do. Many thanks to anyone who can help.

Keyboard Sound Buttons Stopped Working

I have a dell inspiron 1545, (o. S. 7). On 8/14/10 i downloaded the 14 updates from windows as recommended and everything that could go wrong did! So, i was forced to put the laptop back to the way i received it brand new. ( Sorry i don't know what thats called) anyway, now the laptop works great except the mute, turn up and turn down buttons on the keyboard. They do not work at all and i have to use the volume icon to turn up or down. I would really appreciate anyone that has the solution. I have looked everywhere and i'm ready to throw the laptop out with the cat.

Hot Link Buttons Dont Work

When i load some web sites the hot link buttons aren't working. The problem just appeared. I don't remember any changes to the system. Running windows vista) i am talking about buttons that you click on on a web site that call up pop-up windows. This one site i frequent has buttons that i have always clicked on to call up results pop-ups from bridge games.

All of a sudden when the site opens the outlines of the buttons are there but no filler and no functionality. What has changed and how can i fix it?  I've tried changing cookie settings, and tried to find answers in various help areas. I know the buttons work on the site because i have checked on other computers.

Monitor Cuts Off Important Information And Buttons

I have a 46" hdtv and use it as a monitor for my new windows/hp machine. My suggested resolution nis 1920 x 1080 and i would like to stay with it. The only problem is that there is about 3/4" missing from the display all around the perimeter. This renders crucial display features unreadable. Items such as the three window controlling functions in the top right, the title bar, and the back button are nearly off the screen. Is there any way to put a border around the display area in such a way that i will be able to see "a full screen?"

Usb Headset Volume Buttons Stopped Working

I have the asus travelite hs-1000w headset. It's compatible with all versions of windows. I had this particular headset for about two weeks before the volume buttons on it stopped changing the volume.

It's plug-n-play "driver free", so there are no driver updates for it - i've checked. It's always set as the default sound device to be used when it's plugged in. I don't have any intelli- products (intellitype, intellipoint; someone suggested there might be a conflict).

It worked with no problems whatsoever until one day i rebooted my laptop and only the volume buttons stopped their function for an unknown reason. It's not the usb port; changing ports doesn't make any difference. It's not the headset; the buttons work when tested with other computers, both pc and mac. Nothing was installed during the session before reboot, not even any windows updates.

Yet the volume buttons still don't move the volume slider. I've tried everything i can think of, including uninstalling the driver/rebooting/plugging the headset back in and letting it do its business. My last resorts are to do a repair install of win7, and if that doesn't work, reinstall win7 entirely.

But, as one may guess, i don't want to have to basically reinstall everything (200+ gigs) on my computer just to get one thing working again that, at this rate and based on past events with it, can't be guaranteed to stay working again for much longer after that.

What really bugs me is i seem to be the only one on the planet who is having this sort of issue.
How do i get these buttons to function again if it's something on my computer that's affecting them?

Screen Will Randomly Show Up With Blurred Icons, Buttons

Since i loaded windows 7 professional, my screen will randomly show up with blurred icons, buttons, etc. Almost like they are being pixelated. Sometimes i can move the cursor over the icon, and it will then display correctly. The other day my entire desktop was blurred. Tried loading the latest video driver, but it says it is the latest.

Travelite Wireless Usb Headset Buttons Don't Work

I'm having issues with the volume +/- buttons on an asus hs-1000w travelite wireless usb headset. The power and link buttons work, and the headset functions properly, but these two buttons don't. As far as i am aware, there's no reason why; i just turned them on one day and they didn't work - and with the headset being wireless, this is a big issue.

I also tried a friend's wired logitech usb headset on my computer, and the volume buttons on that did nothing either. So i'm thinking that either it's a driver issue (which, i might add, would be funny because the asus headset is "driver free", and there are no updates for the "driver" - believe me, i've researched), or an os issue.

(I have win7 home x64, by the way. ) The volume +/- buttons worked for a couple weeks after i received this headset, which was gifted as brand new and not refurbished. I don't get any errors, the device manager recognizes the wireless usb audio "driver". And something is still up. Any help or guidance at all would be greatly appreciated. I have had this problem, asked around, and done the research literally for months, but to no avail. There isn't even any support for this product on the asus website - it's like it doesn't even exist to them.

Disappearing Drive

I am running windows 7 -64 bit professional
The system boots off a 10k velociraptor

I also have a raid 5 set up for my data through a silicon image sil 3124 running in one of the spare pci-e slots. It comes on just fine (as drive d). Frequently, usually after the system has gone to sleep, the drive just plain disappears. I have to reboot to bring it back to life on the system. Two questions; toward the same end.

1) how do i get it to stop disappearing?
2) how do i get windows 7 from going to sleep? Ive messed round with the power options in the control panel and ive come to the conclusion that windows 7 -64 bit is narcoleptic.

Disappearing Programs

I have yet been able to regularly duplicate this problem, but it seems to happen to me at least once a day. I did a clean install of w7rc on a fresh hard drive and everything installed fine. However, occasionally i will click a program on my task bar and it will way it's not there and ask me if i want to delete the shortcut. If i go to the start bar, there are no programs and the only thing i can do it shut down. I'm uncertain if microsoft is finding this issue as i receive no apparent error. Upon rebooting, everything is fine. Like i said, i don't know how to reproduce it as it seems to have no trend towards doing a specific operation, but it seems to happen to me at least once a day.

I do not know why it is temperamental, and i do not know how it decides what to show or hide, or when or why?

Why Are My Files Disappearing?

Lately i have been having problems with my files disappearing and then reappearing. I'll type up a word document and save it in a specific folder. When i go back to look for it in said folder it is not there. I try to search for it and it is no where in the library. I also try to rearrange the folder in a different ways to find the file. Alas, it still does not show up. The way i have to find it is to go into word and hope that the document is in the recently opened documents. If not, i am
Screwed and have to wait for it to magically show up again. Does any one know what my problem is and how to fix it?

Disappearing Mouse Pointer

After a while of using my laptop, my mouse pointer gets uncontrollable for a few seconds. After it starts disappearing or moving objects, maximizing and minimizing for a few seconds it (sometimes) goes back to normal for about a minute and starts acting erratic again. This will go on for hours or until i get frustrated and shut down my system. Is this happening with any other users. If so please tell me how to fix this problem, i am tired of losing unsaved data. I lost seven chapters the other night.

Microsoft Games Keep Disappearing

Some of my microsoft games (e.g, freecell, solitaire, etc. ) Periodically disappear from my desktop - usually after the computer wakes from sleep mode. When that happens, i also cannot open them from the control panel. I've noticed that others seem to have this problem too. I've tried the check/unchecked games trick discussed in the forums. This doesn't work. I've been able to use the system restore, but it is tedious to keep doing that and i'm afraid that i might lose some programs or work one time doing that. I've run anti-spyware and anti-virus programs but they haven't found anything. Anyone have any suggestions?

Disappearing Address Book

Went into windows live mail to send an email and all my addresses had disappeared. Gone.zip. Found them in a folder on the computer. Reinstalled them in windows live again only to have them move 4 more times. The contacts stay in windows mail for a few days then zip. Gone and i have to reinstall them again. And this morning i got a pop up that said sticky notes weren't working, ms didn't know why, and they would get back to me when they found a solution. I'm already old. I don't know how much more time i have. These little glitches are enough to turn me into a mac person.

Ie8 Slow To Close

I run vista home premium (32) on an hp pavillion dv6809wm laptop, 3 gig ram. I use ms internet explorer 8 and it runs as well for me as for anyone, most of the time- speed ok, page load ok- not too many issues. But it routinely does something that drives me fugbuck. When i go to close it, it disappears from the screen and from the taskbar, but the shortcut on my dt stays highlighted for anywhere from 30 seconds to >2 minutes, during which time i cannot do anything else.

I can't even open task manager to see if something is eating resources. I regularly clean out temp files and other garbage; i am savvy enough to do all the basic things that are usually suggested first. I also do not enable any add-ons except adobe pdf, do not use yahell toolbar or any other tool bars. Doesn't do it all the time, but at least one time in three. Anyone heard of this one?

Dvd Drive Disappearing Problem

On 2 laptops - almost identical dell inspiron 1545's - i have installed w7 rc 64 bit - after installation, the dvd drive seems to come and go at random - if its not showing, you can push the button to open the drive, and it reappears, and works fine for a while, but then it disappears again.

One one machine, i tried all of the suggestions about removing uperfilters, and lowerfilters, etc from the registry, disabled the integrity check, and turned off the driver check - have done all driver updates, and windows updates - now the drive works fine!

On machine 2 - did exactly the same things - drive still having this issue. I have also tried installed 32 bit w7 on it, and same thing. It originally came with vista - and it worked fine. Also, i know the drive is good - if it can boot and install windows 7 twice! Any thoughts/advice would be welcome!

Files Disappearing From Recycle Bin

I have had this computer since christmas, and i love it. I have windows 7 and everything has worked perfectly up until i got connected to the internet in late april and so far it has been one problem after another. And that leads me to my latest frustration. Files that i have deleted to the recycle bin have disappeared. And i did not permanently delete then!So far i have not lost anything of major importance, except for some photos, but, that's not even a disaster.

However, i'm now afraid to delete anything, for fear that i would not be able to restore the item if i needed it. Fter losing a handful of files from the recycle bin, i did an experiment:  i purposely deleted some items/folders that were empty or contained stuff that i absolutely didn't need. I checked the recycle bin every day and for a while my deleted files were still in the recycle bin. Now, today. They're gone! 

The only thing i did out of the ordinary was download an update for adobe reader. That shouldn't have any affect on what happens to the contents of the recycle bin - or would it?So, i really would like to know why this is happening. Alice bb**** as of today, june 22/10, i have tried your suggestion azeez n. As well as others from related topics and still files disappear from recycle bin.

Now, here's a detailed account of events leading up to the files disappearing from the bin, all from today. Checked my email. Created 2 unimportant word files and then deleted them to the recycle bin. Bell program did a scheduled anti-virus scan.completed. All ok. Opened action center, recycle bin  empty! Windows defender recommended a scan. Normal. Created 3 more unimportant word files and deleted them to the recycle bin.

Went to favorites clicked on microsoft answers, recycle bin empty again!Created 2 more unimportant word files and deleted them to the recycle bin. Signed in to windows mail;  checked mail;  signed out. Selected microsoft answers from favorites; checked my threads; checked some related questions; signed out. Java update notice popped up on screen. Allowed it to download. Bell internet security notice popped up saying it had found and deleted a virus and recommended an immediate scan to see if there were any further infections.

Did deep scan at 98% complete. Recycle bin empty again!Scan completed. All ok. All these instances happened in one day, today. What is happening? As of june 25/10 the problem still exists. I am almost certain than it only occurs when i am online. I am trying to monitor this more closely and will post the outcome. Sometimes it seems as if the recycle bin is on a timer and just empties on queue. One day it seemed to empty about every hour.

One thing is for certain, i cannot use the recycle bin in it's present operating condition. Can i completely delete the bin and reinstall it?  If so, how? I am just a novice so please excuse me if this is a stupid question.

Error Message - Program Is Not Responding Close Down Anyway

Error message "program is not responding close down anyway" while using music programs, playing game and during system shutdown. Audio glitch with freezing - please helpthe other day my 64-bit windows 7 started messing up with audio. The moment i try to play a song on itunes it freezes and stays on the 0:00 time mark. I have to ctrl+alt+delete it to get it to close (it registers as "not responding").

Same thing happens with youtube, and any game i try to play. Even when i shut off my computer it has the "program is not responding close down anyway?" Prompt for the little audio noise when its turning off/logging off. When it has to play a sound for a usb being plugged in, it just plays really low static. Unfortunately, i am an idiot and don't have a full backup, only an online backup of about 2 gigs and i haven't updated in a while. I have a physical external hard drive now and backed it up, but obviously if it now working now, that wont do much.

How To Find And Close A Program Using Mirror Drivers?

Aero troubleshooting told me that "a running program uses a mirror driver (a type of display driver) which is not compatible with the aero desktop experience. To allow aero effects to be displayed, close any programs that use mirror drivers, such as windows remote assistance and windows live mesh. "

Aero effects were working fine earlier in the day. I had to get help from hp for some printer problems and i allowed them access to my computer and they removed and then reinstalled the printer files and that works fine now but the aero effects do not.

I would appreciate any help.
