I am running win 98 (first edition) and most (not all) of my icons have gone black! Everywhere - on the desktop, in programs, favourites, quick launch and more. Except the icons in the startup programs on the taskbar next to the clock.
I can see the outline of each icon, and read the discription, but there is no colourful detail, just jet black!!.
My desktop background bitmap is perfect in every detail!!
I have tried removing the display adapter, it makes no differance.
Any suggestions? :thumbsup: :flowers:

Have you done a Scandisk and Defrag lately? Clear your temporary internet files and run Windows Disk Cleanup or better yet use CCleaner. If using CCleaner, stay away from the Issues option unless you have a specific Registry problem you are trying to deal with.
