You know, the one that has the channel guide icon and the icons to select a catagory [sports, entertainment business etc].i dont have any of those or the channel guide icon, just a black bar with the 1 or 2 channels i chose to add. any ideas? thanks

When the Instalallation asked you your country you selected None. I think that's the problem. How do you correct it. Well I have no idea

I got an Idea. I know it's NOT the best solution but if you
reinstall Windows 98 (It will take about 35 minutes), you can make
the right country choice. This will certainly correct the problem
but I don't know if you find reinstalling worth it.

Look in your Windows/Web directory... This is where all the channel files are stored... If it is empty, you will have to get the channel and put them back... if the channels are there, deny my answer...
