    Default Can anyone tell me what hidden layered window is?

    I get a notification that hidden layered windows can't close - by search it seems that I can't find any programs named like this - is it a threat - can anyone help??

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro
    Software Version:6.0

    Hidden layer windows are not necessarily sinister or evidence of a malicious infection. If an application generates a secondary window (as many will do) and the application itself is then minimized by the user to the task bar, the secondary window is hidden by the OS (i.e., it is not closed, but it is invisible on the desktop). If the hidden secondary window is busy performing some function or waiting for some user input and the computer is shut down then it can be difficult or impossible for the OS to close it automatically.
