I've just narrowed down a problem I've been having on my HTPC to window blinds, as disabling windowblinds in services cures the problem.
the problem happens while using the media browser plugin to watch a movie that's been ripped to the hard drive in folder format, when
selecting play the screen just shows mce back ground and the task bar shows, that's it, nothing else will happen, the only way out of this is
to get the mouse and click the back ground, then the movie will play.
This happens on windows 7 with windowblinds 7.4 and windows 8 with windowblinds 8.
I'm not bothered about it on windows 8 because that's my laptop, but widows 7 is on my HTPC so windowblinds stays disabled.
Any ideas would be appreciated
