    thank you for answering but i had already tried that...
    it seems that the taskbar loads after the mame.exe...
    because the program loads,i see the menu for a second, and then the taskbar loads and mame.exe gets minimised.
    if i could postpone the loading for a couple of seconds until the pc is completely ready maybe it would be successful.
    my other pc has windows 7 and it auto loads maximized the same exe and everything is fine.
    i forgot to mention im using xp lite

    I wish I could help but maybe you could ask in the MAME forums if they have one, or maybe someone else here may come up with a solution.

    good luck.
