PC shutdown problem

I'm running windows 98se. Recently after I've closed a programme I've been using (e.g. Word or internet explorer)I'm left with a blank desktop with no icons on it. I can't seen to get any response from the machine, and have to ctl+alt+del to close down the machine and re-boot.

Any thoughts what's causing this? The only changes I've made to my machine recently is that I've deleted Kazaa and downloaded some anti-pop up software- could this be connencted?

Thanks for any help.

Maybe. Uninstall anti-popup and see if this clears it. Kazaa can also leave bits around.
