I am currently experiencing an intermittent problem where all the icons and bottom status bars disappear(not the blue screen of death)for no apparent reason and I am left with an empty desktop. The last time it happened it was preceded by a "runtime error" screen, but occasionally happens when I close a program e.g Excel. Is it possible to recover the desktop with rebooting?. I am running Win98SE.
My problem happened again when closing down my e-mail (Outlook Express)and there is no response to right clicking the blank desktop. The error screen was:- Runtime error Program C:\Windows\explorer.exe R6025 pure virtual function call
