    I have a Pentinum 2, 350 MHz computer running Win98SE. I have attempted to down load new video drivers or other programs and when I do I do not get the window that allows me to complete the download. Instead I get a little multi colored checkerboard in the upper left corner. How do I get rid of this so that I can complete my driver or program downloads ? It is getting very frustrating as I do not know what is causing this little checkerboard to appear instead of the expected program.

    Any help to correct this problem would be appreciated.

    Have you by any chance installed a downloading program like download express or download expert. I seem to remember that some of these programs do that sort of thing.

    Hi DaveBurnett,

    I have not used or downloaded either of the two programs you mentioned.

    Any other ideas ?

    Thanks,
