I believe somebody may have played around with your themes, or installed WindowsBlinds.

Is there any new Icon in your System Tray?

Check Add/Remove programs for WindowsBlinds, as that is one application that has that ability.

And its not hard to move Icons... To move them back into order, right-click on your desktop and choose:
-Arrange Icons
-By Name

That should help.

Let me know if you're still stuck

No, it happened last week before daylight saving.

another fault is that before i go into Win98 screen on startup it asks me to scan disc for errors. I do and still nothing happens. On startup if I push any key it gets me into the Win program?
