    This is wierd, some of the text i'm reading and writing (in messenger and
    outlook express) is being displayed as a square instead of the
    letter....also the downward pointer, next to an option window, looks like a
    'funny shaped six'..(6), like a greek letter of the alphabet.......so my
    toolbar has the write mail icon,with a funny six next to it, as do all the
    icons in the toolbar that have a 'down' pointer....WHATS HAPPENIN' please???
    It's drivin' me mad....all the best...FRED C
