On startup  I get a blank grey box in the center of the desktop.  Did cntrl alt delete and CPU states 100%.  No appls running.

Happens after Novell login regardless of administrator or user.

Any thoughts.  Not connected to the Internet.  If you drag mouse over it, goes to hour glass.

From Task Manager - click the Process tab and click the CPU column twice - what's at the top of that list?
Of course, a reboot would probably fix it, no?

It reappears after a reboot?
Is it a login dialog box?  Same size?
So, if you don't login to Novell, no box?
Have you tried updating your video drivers?

Is it there if you boot into Safe Mode?

No not there in safe mode.  Neither is the vshwin32.exe taking up 99% of cpu!

I believe that's McAfee...
You might also try it this route - start->Run->Msconfig
Just remove the check next to vshwin32.exe in the Startup tab (or services, depending on how it's running)...
