    When I boot up with my DELL; 1.5ghz.; 256 mhz. RAM, 40 Gig. HD;, I fequently get lony 2 icons in the SysTray: Volume and Microsoft Messenger Service. When I click on Ctrl-Alt-Del I find the following list:
    Explorer
    Em_exec
    Hpostr05
    Mdm
    Navapw32
    Hpovodx05
    Iamsetup
    Rsrcmte
    Remind32
    Poproxy
    Msmsgs
    Now the hour glass persists and there appears to be more files available but I can't seem to access them.

    So there you have it. Chuck

    Hiya

    Well, most of them are hidden from view, so they won't be in your Systray. Lets go through them.

    Exlplorer: Thats, well, what you are using all the time. Close that and you shut Windows down.

    Em_exec: Your mouse driver

    Hpostr05: may be from your printer.

    Mdm: not sure

    Navapw32: Norton protect. Its usually in the background.

    Hpovodx05: printer?

    Iamsetup: could be your messenger

    Rsrcmte: ?

    Remind32: a reminder of some sort

    Poproxy: online proxy

    Msmsgs: your messenger

    If the hour glass is sticking, what do you have starting up? Go to Run and type MSINFO32. Choose Software Enviroment then Startup Programs. copy/paste the list.

    Regards

    eddie
