Yes, you read that correctly. My otherwise fine vista installation keeps opening calculator vg in front of what I'm doing, often with at least 10 or 20 windows at a time.

I have absolutley no idea what provokes this behavior.

Hi, click on Start/Run, type msconfig, ok, look under startup to check no crap programs are starting with windows.
Also, check your Task Manager by right-clicking on the taskbar at the bottom of your dektop. A quick way of seeing what progs and services are running.
See if it happens in Safe Mode?
Also, do a full scan with Defender and any Anti-Virus software you have.

I'm an idiot. Turns out the monitor was sitting on one of my keyboard's "quick access" keys.

Thanks anyway. (I am normally much smarter than this.)
