Basic stuff- Start button > Settings > Taskbar & Start menu.

Possible tinkering with font sizes via the display settings (Right click in Desktop)

basic it maybe (a bit like reading really) the question was how do i stop it going back to its default settings?i know how to change it.i also know how to apply it,what i dont know is why it changes back when i turn the pc on.if the question is that "basic"i should expect it to be answered by many.from clueless halfwit.

Did you recently install/uninstall anything? Also, do you use programs like Adaware, Spybot-S&D, etc.?

I try to help,,,,,,, keep it short, and am misunderstood.

My fault really, should have looked harder at the question........... "how to stop a reversion after setting things as required?"

Still "basic" because I have nothing else to suggest apart from the obvious, 'Apply', 'OK', and then showing no mercy - 'Restart from cold'(with fingers firmly crossed).

Try running SFC with your Win98 disc in the comp to look for corrupt files. Go to Start\Run and type SFC

Does a Amd 1400 run at 1050mhz?, my old AMD 1200 used to run at 1196,have u set the FSB right in bios.

yes it is running correctly i think,if i change the fsb it wont boot,i have tried to fiddle,but the mobo is so unstable,i will replace it as soon as i can scrounge takes about 5 minutes of restarting to get it going,i guess it must have to be warm to work and it is prone to crashing if i put too much pressure on it.i have built it myself so i have tried differant drives etc so i know it is down to mobo or was my main pc untill i saved up for a msi kt4 and 2500+ stable never crashed once and i am always giving it a hard time (xp pro)
