Does it only appear when you have Word or Outlook or something open? It could be a "save" file. Is it semi-transparent?

Yeah, Bruceleeon told me that was the wrong answer. He's seen it too. I on the other hand have never seen that on any computer.

Seems like it's a function of Outlook express and since I don't use it and never have. I haven't seen that particular problem.

Just to be safe though I just uninstalled OE and that patch from my system!

If you guys are "help desk" types you must have some great stories about the maroons ya help. How about treating us to a few?
