Apps become minimized into a title bar o

By alainiala ·
Our desktops are currently installed with NT4 SP6. Our users are given standard office apps (IE, Office, Acrobat, Notes, etc)
We have encountered a problem w/ some users in which minimizing an application minimizes it into a small title bar floating on top of the desktop... it does not go to the task bar. The close and min/maximize buttons become grayed out and the application often needs to be killed and restarted in order to function again. What can be causing this? Our most recent corporate roll-out was SP6 to the desktops. However, only a small number of machines are exhibiting this behaviour. Is this hardware related?

I have heard many people complaining strange behavior after installing SP6. It only affects some hardware (some Compaq models to mention one). I haven't heard of this specific problem, but I would bet this has something to do with the SP6 update. Have you tried installing SP6a on these computers? How about re-installing SP5? I now you posted this question a long time ago, but I noticed nobody had answered it and I though I might be able to help. Let me know if you have already fixed this problem.
