Windows 7 applications open with a random "always on top" attribute RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my Windows 7 Professional 64bit Machine, a newly opened window will have an "always on top" attribute.  This seems to be independent of the application (In other words, it seems to affect all applications).

  • Hi,

    I suggest you take a clean boot check whether it is caused by the third party applications.

    How to clean boot:

    Please monitor the system in the Clean Boot environment. If the problem does not occur, it indicates that the problem is related to one application or service we have disabled. You may use the MSCONFIG tool again to re-enable the disabled item one by one to find out the culprit.

    Also, test the issue in Safe Mode.

    I will get to the bottom of this, not.
