Click X's, But Won't Close. Also Blank Buttons

Q: Click X's, But Won't Close. Also Blank Buttons

All of a sudden tonight, my computer won't close programs by clicking on the X. The _ line won't minimize, and the box won't expand.

Also, for some reason, *some* pop-up boxes have blank buttons. i.e. The OK/cancel buttons aren't labled.

I have restarted many times. Run virus software.
*For some reason, I can't get the scan disk to schedule a scan.*
I've searched the internet for someone else that is having the same problem, but apparently it's just me.

The only way to close programs is through task manager, or to use File - close when available, etc.

My mouse is working fine for all other functions.

Anybody got a solution?

Preferred Solution: Click X's, But Won't Close. Also Blank Buttons

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Click X's, But Won't Close. Also Blank Buttons

First time I've heard of this. I have gotten error like this when installing a software. Maybe you installed something that gave you this. Check out any software or update that has recently been installed, or try a system restore to a previous date of this occurring, maybe that will fix this.

I once got no properties of my sceeen after installing Nvidia driver (I have XP) but this may be the thing...
Good luck, and keep us posted...

Ran into some odd computer problems today, any assistance would be fantastic.

PC / OS / Browser Info:
Dell Optiplex (bought from DiscountPC.com)
P4 1.99GHz, 512mb RAM, 40GB HD
Win XP (OEM) ver 2002, SP2
Firefox v3.0.3
IE v6.0.2900.2180

Overview Problems:
1.) Windows login password shows "IIIII" instead of the encrypted dots to indicate a password
2.) Random Outlook emails appear completely blank
3.) Google homepage on IE is completely blank, other various pages do not fully load, but work in Firefox
4.) Button text on some apps (Auslogics defrag) are completely gone
5.) Various system hangs

The computer worked fine until today. It was original purchased as a frugal replacement for an existing broken office PC.

Methods tried:
1.) Defrag/registry defrag, auslogics apps missing button text
2.) Ran AVG Virus scan (buttons missing text), to no avail, wouldn't run
3.) System restored to yesterday, and then to a week ago, to no avail
4.) Visited various tech support sites that suggested to run various REGSVR32 commands in Start -> run to no affect
5.) Ran IEFix app which was suggested might bring back broken IE components
6.) Explored Device manager, nothing is apparently wrong with any devices

This is about the extent of my IT knowledge. I would much prefer a way to fix other than formatting - I'm not even certain a format would fix the problem.

Any suggestions? Any more information I could provide? Have no idea what it could... Read more

I've just been setting up my new laptop today. After I installed AVG it said it had picked up a virus, which it moved to the virus vault and after that I went to the vault to delete it. I couldn't see what the virus was because oddly all the spaces where it usually had the virus file name were blank, but I pressed delete anyway and AVG popped up a big long blank window. Same sort of thing happened in the middle of trying to update AVG. I also had trouble with blank buttons and blank windows everywhere while I was trying to install other anti malware software - even the Start button in the menu bar was blank. I did a system restore, and that seemed to get rid of the problem and then I installed AVG again and it all started going wrong again. I can't do Google searches because all the results are blank. The computer can't detect Norton, which is already installed, it's trying to install the ccCommon file when it starts up. So something must be wrong.

EDIT: New development - I had left the laptop on, and when I just looked at it it had restarted by itself and had up a funny screen and said it was checking itself for drive consistency. I just turned the computer off because I have no idea what on earth it was doing and didn't want it to stuff up more.

Here's the log:

A:Blank buttons, blank windows, blank internet search results

I ended up turning it back on and letting it do the drive consistency check, though this didn't show up anything. I then uninstalled all Norton components including removing registry entries, and removed the other programs I had just installed (AVG, AdAware, ZoneAlarm, Yahoo Messenger - there might have been a few more too). Norton took forever to uninstall, I have a feeling it might have been up to something. I then ran a couple of registry and cache cleaners and they fixed a lot of stuff. During the whole process of constantly restarting the computer every so often, the drive consistency check came up a few more times - only once did they find something (I think they were AVG files). Anyway, this is what the log looks like now, and everything seems to be working. Does anyone know what causes these drive consistency checks? (They're not appearing at the moment, but they were being pretty sporadic before I did a lot of fixes). And is there anything more that can be fixed before I try installing all my regular programs again? (Norton was preinstalled already - I won't be reinstalling it!)

I'd appreciate it if anyone can help solve this problem.

When I left click or right click on an MP4 file, Windows Explorer encounters a problem and needs to close.
Explorer closes and restarts. If the MP4 was left clicked, Real Player will start and play the file. If the MP4 was right clicked, right click menu will open and error window will open immediately after.

The error report shows:

On this new laptop the left and right click buttons are in the corners of the trackpad, unlike my old aspire where they were on a seperate pad just below. The problem with the new one is, the cursor moves when you press for left click, making it annoyingly hard to scroll down, stop, then scroll down again. Is there a fault on it, or can this over-sensitivity be adjusted?

Hello everyone!

Just made the full switch from XP to Win7 and everything is just fine and running well.
However there's one small thing that I don't like.

I use the standard Aero Skin and would like to increase the Min,Max & Close Buttons in the Explorer Window.

There's between the bottom ledge of the buttons and the bottom ledge of the title bar a small gap (See Screen), that i'd like to remove with increasing the size of the buttons.
Already edited the settings in "Window Color and Appearence" but unfortunely it's not completly to my wishes.
I'd like to keep the gap as small as possible.

It's not the design that disturbs me, it's more a practical issue with some Programs that I use that are docked to the top of my screen, while the titlebar is already out of the screen area.
Is there some Way to change that to my likings?

Thanx in advanced for your help.

A:Increase Min,Max & Close Buttons

I'm afraid there's no way to do that. I just tried and the bit below the buttons got bigger as well.

Running winxp up to date. Instead of the normal display of these buttons on the menu bar, minimize looks like a file folder, restore is a dark rectangle and close is an open square. Any drop down arrow might look like an hour glass (it is very small). The right arrows when you click on the desktop or the start menu look like computer mouses. Radio buttons might look like a wierd Q - hard to see even w/ my magnifier!! This computer only accesses the internet maybe 2x a wk during football season and the rest of the time it's for solitaire. I've rebooted but that did not help. McAfee runs weekly last on 10/30, spy sweeper last on 10/27.

Hey, Jake here, AKA Pinesol.

So, last night I got into customising my UI. Like, the general stuff you can do under the customization for Windows 7. I noticed a friend of mine having a different look for his Close, Minimize, and Maximize buttons. Not completely sure if it was cause he was dual booting with Ubuntu and Windows 7. But, all I know is that I would like to change how they look. Making the desktop and everything a little more personal. Umm, but I searched this forum, and google for something that would allow me to edit these buttons and I found nothing. Just stuff for switching which side the buttons were on. Any and all help would be appreciated.

A:Minimize, Maximize & Close buttons not working.

Something like that would be a Beta bug, and it's highly unlikely to get fixed by something we can get at.
About all we can do is test this to see if others are getting the same behavior or not, and either confirm it's a cross-platform bug or something that's a bit more machine specific.

This problem just started recently.

Every time I open a site in Firefox, the Close and Minimize buttons are gone. (Firefox 35)

I can click F11 on and off, and they will reappear.

If I Minimize and Restore, the problem is back.

What's going on?



A:Firefox loses Close and Minimize buttons

Are you running in "full-screen" mode, i.e. did you push the middle "square" button (between minimize and close)?

Something strange with FF running full-screen mode, I've also observed on a friend's machine. The Bookmarks Toolbar disappears when running full-screen, at least sometimes on this friend's machine (but not on all machines).

Clicking on the "double-squares" button (to return to "windowed" mode) brings back the Bookmarks Toolbar.

So just go to "windowed" mode, and drag the outer edges of the FF window to almost the edges of the screen. This will keep you in "windowed" mode, but will give you almost the entire screen size just about the same as "full-screen" mode. And your anomalies may disappear.

The visibility of those buttons are determined by the application developers, when they create the window styles.

Unless you're willing to learn some reverse enginerring and hacking skills, if an application has been designed with all three buttons, or various combinations of them, or none at all, then only the developers of that application can change that.

Unless the application itself provides the option of customizing them...

Hello ghostlyogre,
Some system specs would help, but for now try this.
If you are using an NVidia card, disable NView, or use selective disable.
Try reverting to Classic style folders and see if that does it.
Have you used any software to alter your icons or appearance of windows ?, if you have do a system restore to before that point.
Hope one of these nails it for you.
Fill in your specs and post your results, good luck.

I was able to adjust (make bigger) the size of these buttons using REGEDIT. It worked for Internet Explorer, Control Panel, and Regedit. Strangely, those settings do not control the MMC buttons in Microsoft Office applications. Does anyone know how to adjust these buttons in Office?

A:How to adjust size of minimize maximize close buttons

Office, since probably at least Office 2000, has always been a testing ground for new UI concepts for Microsoft. Office 2000 introduced a "flat" style that was all the rage for a time, then Office 2007 saw the dawn of the Ribbon UI. Over on the Mac side you saw the formatting pallet, which is sort of like an early predecessor to the Ribbon UI in the v.X and 2004 versions.

So every Office version will require its own set of hacks to do things like you want. Office GUI controls don't necessarily correspond to the Windows GUI controls. That goes double for VBA userforms, which are an offshoot of VB6 controls. The newer ActiveX controls you can use in other parts of Office don't apply to VBA userforms sadly.

I have had recent issues with Firefox 35.01 where often after moving off the home page the Minimize, Maximize, and Close Buttons do not work. However, everything else in the browser does. I usually have to activate the menu bar to close the browser that way. I am nervous about creating a new Firefox profile. The new build, Firefox 36 is slated for next week.

I am using the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird. I am running Windows 7. I have been having a variety of strange problems this morning.
The minimize, maximize, and close buttons are not working on any browser, nor do they work in Thunderbird. To close out of these applications, I must right-click the item's icon on the taskbar and select close. If I am using Firefox, I can right-click on a minimize, maximize, or close button and select Restore, then I can minimize or maximize -- but only if I stay in the tab I am in. If I change tabs or open a new tab, the buttons do not work (unless I select Restore as described above).
Similarly, the buttons will work in Thunderbird if I right-click one and select Restore. Otherwise, they won't.
At the same time, I've noticed that I cannot move any icons around on my desktop. (Auto arrange icons is indeed unchecked.) Also, none of the buttons on YouTube (volume, pause, etc.) are working.
Any ideas? I've tried running Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro and neither detect any problems.

I doubt I'm asking this question in the right category, but I figured it could be a result of me disabling some services to stop cpu spikes every hour.

The problem started a few days ago. It only applies to buttons that depend on other fields being filled before one can click on them. Using the link below as an example, I could not proceed despite filling in my birthday. The "go" or "next" button will not become solid. I thought it was an issue with the website, but my friend didn't have a problem when he tried it. I experienced something similar on amazon, where clicking on a button to get a seller account wouldn't do anything (it's supposed to show a box where I can type in a verification code and connect me with someone from amazon). It's a problem on any browser. I can download programs just fine, so it's only an issue on the internet.

Currently working on a Dell Latitude E6500 laptop with a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro 64 and both the left and right trackpad buttons right-click.

I've checked the mouse settings in device manager as well as uninstalled and re-installed the driver.

I tried a second fresh installation of Win7 on a different HDD, same result.

The driver that Windows installed automatically wasn't the Dell trackpad driver, so I tried uninstalling the stock driver and installing the Dell trackpad driver. When I do this neither trackpad button works at all regardless of the settings.

Was hoping someone might have an idea or suggestion as to what I should try next? Thanks in advance, I appreciate your time.


I had it taken apart a couple days ago and didn't notice anything odd or remarkable with the connections or cable.

The trackstick buttons (three above the touchpad) seem to function correctly regardless of which driver is installed.

Changing the settings to reverse right and left button function does change the behaviour of the right button to act as a left click.

A:Fresh Win7 install both buttons right click

If you hook up an external mouse, does it show the same behavior? This will let you know if it is software or hardware related.

Hi, I?m not using trackpoint but I just noticed that both physical trackpoint buttons (those above the trackpad) act as ?right-click?. The trackpad works fine (I mean both left and right are ok on the trackpad). I tried to set up fresh Windows 10 and uninstall mouse drivers, after that install UltraNav from Lenovo page, but it is still like that, both are ?right-click?. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Regards

In the bottom portion, by the clock, a couple of the running processes are missing icons. As you can see in the picture, Windows recognizes that there should be something there, but nothing pops up. Clicking yields nothing, right clicking yields nothing. What's missing is my Dropbox icon, my connections manager (which is built directly into Windows, not even an external application), and...not sure what the last one is.

Any ideas how to fix this? And yes I have 'show icons and notifications' enabled. Disabling and re-enabling doesn't bring back the icons either.

A:Blank Processes buttons in 7

Go to Control Pane > Notification Area Icons and check the box that states alway show all icons and notification on the taskbar.

So I have had this problem for a while now but never really did anything about it. When I left click and hold buttons like 'shift' or 'w' simultaneously, the game I'm playing will crash and just completely exit the game. This happens usually when I spam click but will eventually crash even if I click slowly. It has only happened on two games: Minecraft and Starbound. On Minecraft, the center of the screen will show the flickering blue loading symbol and then crash. I've noticed that when I go in windowed mode, the problem does not occur; however, the screen is buggy and it will show my desktop flickering. It is really frustrating having to restart the game, so please help. Thanks!
