Minimize MDT 2009 = can't access program again (Win 7 64)

We have MDT 2009 installed on our Windows 7 64 Pro systems along with the Inventor 2010 Suite.  The program starts and works fine, but if you minimize the program, you can no longer access the program again.  Picking the minimized program on the toolbar or picking it while cycling through open programs with Alt + Tab keys results in a brief flash of the program and then the desktop background again.  The only way to access the program again is to start Task Manager, highlight the MDT program, and the click the Switch To button.  We run dual monitors in extended desktop mode, but placing the program on either monitor results in the same behavior.  We're on SP3 and Comm Center reports it as up to date.


Anyone else seeing this and what is the fix?
