Black Explorer Panel and Task Bar

  Moppy 20:58 06 May 2003

Task Bar, Quick Launch Bar and Left Tree Panel of Explorer are black - Start will not expand. Reformatted and a week later same thing. Computer was idle at the time - egg timer was locked on screen, rebooted and black Task Bar again. Right click on ToolBar showed no ticks - unable to tick. Task Manager showed nothing unusual. No relevant viruses - AVG did find possible JS/LOOP in a Freeware HTML Editor button script. Running MyIE2 with Outpost Firewall. (could not exit or show Outpost with right click.) Win98 with updates. Icons display ok, but I hide them. Using same setup for many months ok.

I don't know what is causing this but it is not JS/LOOP. The symptoms of that trojan are loads of message boxes appearing when you are on the net.

This will take your post back to the top anyway.
