Hi, my explorer, and was happening to Internet Explorer too, is maximizing to about 1 inch below the top of the desktop. Since it's hard to explain, I took a screenshot, it's uploaded. I think it's some virus/spyware stuff, but i'm not certain... anyone have any ideas?

Are you using an unusual font or video driver setting? If you set your desktop resolution to 640x480x16 colors, what happens then?

Does it do the same in safe mode (F8 on bootup)?

Well, I am going to put Win98 on it, so hopefully it fixes itself.

Can you drag it to fill the screen?
If so, try this first. Open Internet Explorer and drag it full screen. Open another window of Internet Explorer and drag it full screen. Now close the First , and then close the Second. Worth a try.
