My Dell has started to act like Carroll's famous cat. A few hours after booting, windows start to show the desktop behind them. Menus show their choices on a transparent backdrop. Form fields are still rendered, but not their surroundings. Images and often entire regions of web pages appear blank. Booting reliably sets things straight...for awhile. Then the cycle repeats.

I run IE, Outlook 03, Webshots, XMLSpy, Word 03, Excel 03, and Powerpoint 03. In the background I run SETI, MSN IM, Earthlink, Matador, Gator, Palm Hot Synch, Mouse Magic, CitiVan, MFL Pro, iTouch, MemTurbo.

I've tried turning the background things off, but haven't found the problem.

I'd really appreciate any notions.

Hi,

What model computer and what O/S. Tends to be helpful and useful information to supply when posting problems.

Reads like a memory leakage issue.

Try reducing the hard ware acceleration one tab left.

Word 03 and Excel 03 indicates a very old computer.

You may have spyware problems. Download and install AD-Aware, Spybot and Spyblaster. All easily found from this forum and via search engines, or somewhere like http://www.download.com.

Update all three programs once installed, run Ad-Aware & Spybot. remove everything found.
