    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
    Lindyloo

    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:

    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
