terrypin Posted November 15, 2009 Author Report Share Posted November 15, 2009 I looped through the whole hidden list, unhiding and putting on top for two seconds then hiding again. Many were simply a little piece of a title bar. Many others were a title bar with a window frame but nothing in it. Some of the empty windows were transparent, some were opaque. Nothing exciting appeared except the laptop Power Meter. A similar exercise here (on about 160 hidden windows) gave me a mixture of - Recognisable/expected (the minority in my case, but that's probably because I'm not a programmer or similar) - Shouldn't logically still be hanging around (e.g. Outlook reminder messages I closed hours ago) - Programs I thought were uninstalled - I'll have to double-check. - No idea what they are ('M', 'Default IME, 'NetscapeDispatchWnd', etc. etc) These were the bulk in my case. - The running macro itself! (Which duly froze; had to terminate MEP). - Notable weirdies (like 'You are using a Pirated Licence Key', which appears to be a spam window from MailWasher, presumably to encourage me to upgrade to MailWasher Pro) Overall, probably all best left safely hidden! -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
