Thanks for the response. I should have elaborated a little more...
It is not in the task bar (minimized), it's not in running applications
of task manager. If I wait 2 minutes or so, and go through the process
of opening it again, and then clicking Okay when it closes itself 2 or
maybe 3 times, then it will open as a normal window.
I have more info to pass on as a clue to where the problem might be located.
If I try to access the "Create restore point" from the system restore
window, I have this problem. In other words, -Start> all programs>
system restore> create restore point. I have discovered that if I click
-Start> right click computer> properties> system protection, the problem
Perhaps it is no longer a problem as long as I have a work-around, but I
would still like to de-bug this if I could. I'm one of those that happen
to like Vista. I've had my vista machine since May and this is the most
serious problem I have had. LOL.
