Did you check your computer for viruses?


When opening a new window, it alwats used to appear on the taskbar at botton of screen. Recently many windows do not show here anymore - they may have not opened at all or may be open but hidden behind the onscreen window. For instance, several attenpts to open browserand nothing showing but if I press control/alt/delete, they are all listed as open.

Can you please give any advice regarding the cause and solution. I have windows 98 second edition.

Thank you
