Back to desktop

I have a problem with my computer. When I try to open a full-screen program, (E.g. a game) it refuses to open in full screen mode. The program minimises itself and goes back to the desktop. This happens everytime I open a program that is in full screen.

My friend suggested re-installing Windows. Are there any other solutions that don't involve this?

re-installing Windows

is a bit drastic

try a repair

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
