    Re:- Win98, 233mmx,64k ram.
    Sorry, I'm not that conversant with computer lingo ! please answer in english.... Thanks.

    I have a conflict that seems to affect ( amongst others ) my wallpaper, when using other programmes e.g :- opening / closing files etc !

    The colouring of the wallpaper changes from it's normal appearance to that which I suppose is best described as being seen through a heat sensitive camera !

    No defined out-lines and colours run-into each other !

    This happens right from starting-up as well as opening or closing files, programmes and shutting-down ?

    I have used a virus checker, but all seems to be okay ?

    First thing I would try is to update the video drivers. Check the video card manufacturers site for updated video drivers for your system.

    Had this trouble before about three years ago.

    A friend at the time was installing a second hard drive and discovered this fault.

    I don't know what he exactly did, but altered the settings somewhere and all was restored !

    I can only assume that all is okay within, but mixed-up somehow !

    Thanks
