If you put this line inside your while loop, you'll see that the start menu is constantly being detected. Perhaps it's only hidden when you don't have it open and just displays it when you press the Windows key or Start button.

ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : WinExists("Start menu", "All Programs") = ' & WinExists("Start menu", "All Programs") & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
