    Re: Black colouring in Taskbar

    I've got to try my memory here since my Win98 machine is out of service. Right-click your desktop and check the Windows settings to see which one you have (inadvertently?) set to black. I think it's one of 'em like menu, or something like that.

    This problem is mentioned frequently in the MS newsgroups. It seems that re-installing Internet Explorer often fixes it.
