Oh. I left out the details. I only have 48 mb of memory and usually don't keep more than a couple of programs open at once. This time I had Word and Outlook and probably IE5 all going at once, and I could tell there was just a little RAM left because everything slowed way down.
Then it was three finger salute time. I had to CTF-ALT-Delete everything and reboot. It may be that the problems users with big "current" machines are having are do to the fact that they have so many Windows open simultaneously, and ther is a conflict in there somewhere.
That was the point of my original query about screen resolution. Now I remember. -john-
