    I have Windows 98. Text on any given page will have a small area (about one inch) of text slid down between the lines. Highlighting will straighten it out but is annoying. Just bought windows 98 and Microsoft refuses to offer tech support. They want the retailer to fix it. Of course the retailer see's it differently. No warnings, page faults or acknowledgment of a problem by the operating system. Any Ideas?

    I am not really sure if I understand your problem. Does it happen when in Internet Explorer, or when? Can you give a little more details? Try selecting Start, Run, type: SFC Let it check for bad or corrupted files. I assume you did an upgrarde to Windows 98, you make have to delete and reinstall Windows 98 completely. Let us know.

    It's more likely a hardware/drivers issue. The video cards we have at work have a very similar problem, which the maker acknowledges as an issue, but hasn't done anything about.

    Retailer has more units with the same problem. The video card seems to be the problem. {800X600 True Color Intel (R) 810}
    Thanks to Dan O, and Paul D, for their help.
