Explorer windows set to 'On-Top'

Suddenly two out of the Explorer Windows I have opened appear to be set to 'Always on top' - win W7 Pro 64.
A Google search suggests that it may be a bug in W7 and various solutions range from quitting Explorer from Task Manager (drastic as I have quite few open in positions just as I like between the two monitors) to attempting to make all windows the same  Roll eyes
The consensus seems to be that the bug can appear after 'Show Desktop button' is clicked which I did do earlier. But it doesn't always cause this. I have tried clicking the Show Desktop button again a couple of times but it hasn't rectified the issue.
Has anyone else seen this problem and resolved it as I cannot find any reference in any Explorer settings to a 'Set window to top' option?
