Hi
I have windows 98 second edition and my start button icon, minimise, close X and full screen buttons all keep on breaking up - they start off normal and then gradually they all turn grey/white and look nothing like they should. Any ideas.
Thanks

Since your icons start okay I would check for viruses and trojans than might have sneaked by your AV program. An online scan can be done here:

OR here:

On Line virus scan

OR:

Is your system infected by Trojans?

Or to repair Icons see:

Reg Hack

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer]
"Max Cached Icons"="2048"

Or use Tweakui?This will rebuild your icons and associations.http://www.wugnet.com/tips/display.asp?ID=350
