Hi,

strange things happening on a pc with windows98 SE
Sometimes, at startup, het desktop shows unreadable signs for icons.
Also the startmenu is unreadable.

The problem is solved as soon as i start a dos-box, and put it on full screen, then close the box.
After this everything is ok again.

Anyone ever seen this problem?

Another solution would be to automatically open a dos-box full screen for about a second, and let it close again automatically. But i have no clue on how to do this.
