Hey Gang,
I just found this while tooling around with Dr. Watson.
Some of you probably know this already so bear with me.
Ya know how all those things show up in the task monitor
when you give it the 3-finger salute...and you can't tell
what some of them are? If you got 98 & Dr. Watson is
installed...open him up (Start/Programs/Accessories/
System Tools/System Information/Tools)and after he gets
finished with the snapshot choose View/Advanced View/Tasks
and there will be a list of all those file names. Scroll on
over to see who the culprit is. I say WOW everyday http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Amazing the tidbits a little tinkering will dredge up huh...

Thanks for the info. I haven't used Dr Watson much, but guess I need to give it a try again...
