Strange Problem with WindowBlinds on a Media Center PC

Media Browser Plugin

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

Hello Neil

Its not windowblinds causing the problem because it came back last night, seems to be when the pc has been on standby, after a restart its ok again, until the next time it goes on standby, so I think I will have to take this problem to a media center forum or the media browser plugin forum. at least I can switch windowblinds back on again. just in case you still want to know this is a link for the plugin

thanks for the prompt reply and keep up the good work.
