Hi all and thanks for all your help,
While visiting Frank's Windows 95/98/ME Tips at http://9337387.home.icq.com/ under "CTRL-ALT-DELETE when you should use it", I learned that explorer and systray were necessary to make your computer run and you should not shut them down.Nonetheless when i do ctrl-alt-delete it shows no systray running . whyzat? Help I feel naked. john

If you don't have time to do it right you must have time to do it over.

Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - Startup(tab). Make sure that SYSTRAY is checked. Click Apply - OK, then reboot when prompted to.

Actually, only EXPLORER needs to remain in Ctrl-Alt-Delete to run Windows functions. Also keeping SYSTRAY active keeps your taskbar and icons and clock in place.

By the way, thanks for visiting my site. I hope that you're finding it useful.
