visible is the cursor..i hit ctrl-alt-del and the task manager comes up..but
I cannot see anything other than that. How can I fix this problem? WHAT is

    Usually caused by a broken Internet Explorer but could also be pretty
    park virus. Read here:

    Blank desktop or illegal operations error message after you install
    Internet Explorer

    If you don't have the virus try repairing IE from the command prompt
    (with your Windows ME Startup floppy disk "Minimal Boot" option), or by
    switching the explorer shell as described in the previous article.

    You're response would have been greatly appreciated had you directed me to
    the right place otherwise you're just wasting time.

    How about searching newsgroups? m.p.windowsme.general.
    Dave isn't wasting time - just trying to prevent you from doing so, by
    posting in the wrong group for your question.
