I have a computer running 98, when I start it up everything loads up correctly untill my back ground picture comes up then I just get the anoying egg timer spinning for ever. If I press Ctrl,Alt,delete it states that MPREXE is not responding,if I end task I just end up with my background picture and no windows controls no toolbar or system tray.I have even tried to load CDs but nothing comes up on the screen. It is as if the background picture is hidding the main screen, Can any one help me sort this problem out please,Iam just hopping that it is not a virus.

Should help point you in the right direction, if this does not help, type the word MPREXE into google and it will give you several pages of similer problems to yours and the answers. J.
