2 problems...
I had to reinstall windows me… my own fault.....
- I ran norton utilities (optimise start up' and this caused my system to crash and i couldn't restart. I foolishly tried starting up from my windows millenium cd and ended up reinstalling the operating system.
this subsequently led to 'display adaptor not configured properly'
I eventually managed to sort things out (i think) but...
I had to then reinstall my palm desktop software and now get

ERROR STARTING PROGRAM
A required .DLL file, KKWBL.DLL was not found
OK

On starting up. I click ok and it goes


Also My icons are now ‘fuzzy’

In properties, appearance I have them set to size 33
Settings are true colour 32 bit 800x600 pixels
My preferred setting


Any suggestions I'd like to get back to 'default' windows settings

Hi there!

Well, if you reinstalled windows over a corrupt version...even by accident...you've pretty much sealed your fate.

When Windows gets installed over a corrupt install, then all you are doing is a temporary fix. Normally just to recover data.

Since you're having even more problems, your best bet would be to backup your data to floppy, zip, CD-R etc...then format and reinstall cleanly. this will give you a stable version of Windows to work with!

Hope this helps!
