View Full Version : purplish icons/win 98 shutdown

[1] I HAVE A PROBLEM OF SOME ICONS/FOLDERS TURNING PURPLISH. I THOUGHT IT WAS THE MONITOR AND HAVE TRIED ANOTHER MONITOR BUT WITH THE SAME PROBLEMS. THE ICONS/FOLDERS THAT ARE PURPLISH ARE IE5, OUTLOOK, MY DOCUMENTS, RECYCLE BIN, NETWORK NEIGHBOURHOOD, DIAL UP NETWORK. THERE USED TO BE OTHERS ON DESK TOP BUT HAS CHANGED BY ITSELF.

[2] WHY DOES WIN 98 HAVE SHUTDOWN PROBLEMS. IT SHUTDOWNS OK SOMETIMES AND OTHER TIMES IT DOESN'T. HAVE GOT THE LATEST VERSION OF WIN 98 WITH PATCHES BUT STILL HAVE PROBLEMS.

THANKS....SP

first go change the defaul icons for these icons, right click on desktop etc, that should fix those problems.

clean the registry, and keep cleaning it, it will shut down more often.

Hey SP, just wondering if your purple icon problem has been cured?

If not, it could be that your screen needs degaussing... leave another message here if you want to know how to possibly cure that.

Hi

I still have the purplish icons/folders problem. Mike can you tell me how to do degaussing. May be that will help.
Anyone with other solutions for that.
Appreciate all your help

Thanks
SP
