Hi everyone,

I am using Windows 2000 prof.  on my PC.  My problem is,  my desktop is always showing a white box ( approx. 7cm long and 3 cm width) on the right side of the desktop.  It appears on all the Wallpapers. Is it a Virus?  Pls help?

Regards
Baburaj

If your mouse pointer moves behind the box and it is there during boot then it is on your monitor itself and probably means you have a duff screen

Hi baburaj_chelat,

Have you checked the display settings, make sure you don't have "show webpage on desktop" enabled.

Greetings,

Hi LucF,

Thanks a lot for your tip. I could remove by disabling the "show web page on desktop" option.

Warm regards
Baburaj.
