Windows - Remember window sizes

This may be a longshot, but when I close windows in Windows 2000, it doesn't remember the size that I close it as. When I reopen the window, it's back to its default window size. Even if I resize the window and close it at that size, it'll be back to it's big size. Any ideas?

Usually I have to do the following to get the right sized window:
reboot computer
Open program
Resize window
Close program.
Re-open and usually it will be the new size. (if you have multiple instances of the windows open it doesn't work so that is why you have to reboot)
