    i have just installed xp home edition and i am having a few probs. i keep on having two sometimes three little green box's coming up in my task bar that disappear when i run my mouse over them. can somebody please explain what they are for.

    also quite often my mouse button seems to freeze. i can move the mouse anywhere but i can not click on anything.

    also i have been having problems with shutting windows down. the screen comes up saying that the computer is saving my settings and it does not do anything.

    if anybody can help with any of the above i shall be very grateful.
    ta very much.

    Click on the print screen button then go to paint, click edit then paste. Now click on file/save and in the lower drop down menu select jpeg. then in your next post click on the browse button and attach the photo .
