  • General computer issues, advice anyone?

    When i shut down my computer, often it comes up with an "explorer illegal operation" sign. does explorer need an upgrade or something? I have win 98.

    Secondly every time i start my computer, when it comes up to the desktop it flicks to a green screen for about 2 seconds then goes back to my normal desktop picture. The whole screen doesn't go green just the area where the desktop image is.

    any help would be great
