Q

Can't switch between windows using Alt+Tab or using mouse

I am using Windows 2000. For some reason I can't switch between windows using Alt+Tab or by using my mouse. The current window becomes inactive and does not bring the window I want to switch to. Any ideas?
Is it the same window in front every time? If so, I suspect that the application is configuring the window to stay on top. That means that the window can become inactive, but always remains on top of other windows. If that's the case, check to see if the program as an option for disabling this behavior.
