A friend gave me their computer to 'look at'. (running windoze 98) It\nhas a fault I've never seen before. When Windows Explorer is opened, the\npanel on the side with the folder tree, with the lines and plus boxes,\nis completely blank. It's just grey. Not even the white background. All\nthere is is the 'X' box to close it, which it does. ??? Anyone got any\nclues??
