Rain virus??

My screen looks like sh*t sometimes, in Windows 95 ( not in DOS though ). Check a sample at http:/hem1.passagen.se/foxeye/
Could it be some kind of virus?
How do I fix it, without re-installing Windows 95? I've had this problem before and it disappeared when i reinstalled Windows 95.
I have a S3 Trio 64V+ 2MB video-card.
I´ve run Dr. Salomons anti-virus toolkit ( ver. 7.668 ) without result. Please help!

What Snapshot? the one at the URL? Please read this, just food for thought.
I use to spend hours trying to fix my video, modem and weird happenings, all the pain went away
when I bought Matrix Mystique Video card and Asus motherboard.
If you know how you can modify the .inf to get it going.
If I missed any thing let me know.

I've looked at your sample, foxeye, and I'm afraid you have a graphics card problem.

First, try getting the latest version of the drivers.

Next, is this a new card?  If so, return it and get another one.  If not, you may need to shell out some bucks and get a new one anyway.

It could, also, be a virus as you thought, but running a virus checker with no luck tends to make that unlikely.

I find it most unlikely to be a hardware problem, since it has worked well for over a year. This problem only occure sometimes when i start Windows 95. There's no telling when. Another thing that points at this problem being a software problem is the fact that there's no problems what so ever in DOS mode. Tricky, to say the least.
Get yourself some drivers, dude.

Drivers are OS specific.
UG, that is bad,
Try this foxeye and let me know if you come up with anything.

Have not heard from you foxeye. Is your problem fixed?
foxeyeAuthor Commented:
Nope, no help there. The problem hasn't occured since i took the snapshot. I would still like to know what was wrong, it might happen again.

OK, I got some tips, but since my system works fine ( for now ), I cant test them, but I will the next time it occures. Thanks anyway.
