Toad Hangs Forever

Hi, I work at Nike and we have a license for the Toad 10.6 version for Oracle product. I recently took a Windows 7 Enterprise Edition laptop and initially when I installed Toad 10.6 commercial version it worked for 2 weeks and after which whenever I tried to invoke the application nothing happens after that for hours. After struggling for many days aI had to re-install it again and this time even the installation would not happen as it just stops at the extraction stage. I’ve engaged my Desktop support and they tried everything what they should do but nothing helped out. The same software does work on other Windows 7 machines but not on mine. I tried downloading the Trial version but even that did not help me as when I invoke the application nothing happens. Request you to guide on this ASAP as this is hampering my work and I’m having a tough time. Let me know if you have any questions for me which can
help you to fix this. Raj

There have been times when I thought Toad had locked on startup, when in fact it
was the database login dialog box that had opened off-screen. On Win7, hitting
the Windows- key a couple of times will bring an off-screen window
that is in focus back on screen.
