I have just switched on and my desktop shows as old type 98. Any ideas how to get it back

Right Click the "Start" button and choose Properties and then choose between Classic View and "Start Menu" maybe?

Thanks taff: Everthing appears ok now except for control panel which is still set at the old view

Personally I prefer the "Old" or classic view for Control Panel but to switch between the two note that in the left hand pane, where it actually says Control Panel, there is a pair of arrows or chevrons pointing towards the bottom of the screen. Click these and you will see the option to switch views.
