Blank application boxes

The cause is poor code in an application that has closed. This happens a lot with some screen savers in W98.

As to preventing them;
Check for updates for the software that generates them.
Use a different screen saver.
They are more annoying than a harm.

I still get them with some programs and XP. So an OS upgrade won't get rid of them either.

Thanks - I hadn't thought of that but it makes sense.
