Blank items in task bar

By Zalog ·
While running Windows 98 SE I ocassionaly get blank items that appear in my task bar. The item looks like a running application only it has no icon or name (text), it is just a blank box in the task bar. If I click on the item it disappears. What are these phantom applications and how do I prevent them from appearing on my taks bar?

Blank items in task bar

by chris In reply to Blank items in task bar

I run Windows NT and have also had the same problem in the past. I went to Microsoft's site and ran the product update which I was hoping would help and did not. Usually I get them when the screen saves comes on. Since the last service pack update from Microsoft, I no longer have that problem that I am aware of. Just so you know, I am running service pack 6. Good luck.
