You have two items mentioned and only one you're saying has to be reset. Which?
On my Windows 98, I had a problem with the taskbar. Everytime I used the screensaver I would get these little blank squares in the taskbar. Bob suggested I might try uninstalling the patch (Q260067) which I did. That didn't work. Someone else suggested a go around - set the screensaver to "None" and set the "Turn off monitor" for "10 minutes". It works fine everytime I set it, but each time I shut down and restart, it doesn't work. I have to reset it each time I start up. Is there any way that I can fix that, set it once and forget it? Or am I just gonna' have to tolerate those little pesky boxes? Thanks
