Hello,

I installed a Desktop Theme but it wasn´t so good as I thought so I uninstalled it after a short time.

Now the trouble began. I had to restart the computer again and again because it just froze. Finally I re-installed Win98 from CD-rom and the result became better but now the remaining problem. I´m still having the mapicons left. Could anyone help me with this I would be very greatful.

Thanks in advance

Lena

I would first try a couple of things, hold F8 down when booting up and this will give you a menue, hit selection 3 and comeup in safemode. Right-click my computer and go to properties, check each device to make sure you don't have problems or doubles or triples. If you find multiple entries then delete them all and continue down the list and then reboot. The other thing to check would be to run msconfig from the start, run command and see if you have a program under startup that is causing this. Dave

Starlet follow the great advice above ..just so you will know next time., a regestory restore will generaly fix problems like this (sometimes even after a rerun of windows) boot to C:prompt and type C:\scanreg/restore   pick a date before problem

Maybe you uninstall the theme without changing it before ?
I will reinstall the themes, change to a different one then uninstall the theme you don't like.
