The taskbar keeps leaving orphan buttons that are blank and disappear only when clicked on.  This problem also existing with W95b running the IE4 interface, and I was hoping it would go away with W98.

This is a programming bug in Win98.. No fix for this problem.. Just keep clicking the button... Maybe Microsoft will post a fix soon..

Use Start Button, Find, Files and Folders
Serach for a file called ShellIconCache. You can use Shell*.*  to locate the file in the windows directory. when found, highlite the file with your mouse and delete it. Perform a normal shutdown and reboot. This will force a rebuild of all the icons that you use, have used in WINxx. The ghosts should disappear
