Just went to windows update and got this

Thank you for your interest in Windows Update

Windows Update is the online extension of Windows that helps you get the most out of your computer.

You must be running a Microsoft Windows operating system in order to use Windows Update.

I also went to hotmail when Messenger told me I had mail and it said that my browser (IE6) was not necessarily compatible (I need IE4 and up) and would I like to continue anyway ?

WTF goes on ?

Yes, I think it has.
I just went to install XP Styles and it said that maybe my operating system was incompatible or the wrong version as well !!!

It's obviously my machine, but I wonder what. I haven't installed anything out of the ordinary that probably people on this site haven' t installed as well.

So you just keep laughing while you can, it maybe something that will affect others too.

:D

Have you rebooted yet? =) Sometimes that just makes all the difference.

Thanks Lonman, excellent pointer !! ;)

Turns out that it was Naviscope that I installed from a news item on here a week or two ago.
Got into my hidden Icons and I completely forgot about it. :eek:

I thought I'd installed it with default settings, guess I'll have to revisit that area.

Thanks again.
