I had to reinstall broodwar on my dad's computer. The game has exhibited some very strange behaviors.

First of all, the game randomly minimizes when i click in the lower right corner.

Secondly, whenever I click on minimap, it doesn't go to the correct place. Instead, it takes me to the lowermost part.

I know this is the Starcraft 2 minimap but it shows perfectly what I'm trying to demonstrate. For example, when I would click in the middle of the map it would take me to the mid-bottom. If i clicked top right it would take me bottom right and so on.

Has anybody else ever experienced this??

what would happen if i clicked in the middle of the map

I'm working on a desktop with a Windows 7. Turning off the Windows Explorer process does not help anything.
