I am finding your responses very illuminating. I hope that you do not get frustrated and bail out...

All programs are working properly. I have only a few in the startup folder and all of them are up and running correctly. So it must be something in the background that is not serious to the operating of the computer, but serious enough to be an annoyance... I may be off base, but I have a gut feeling that it is a "cleanup" issue... something is not getting the message that the prog has gone on to another task, and a footprint is left on the task bar.

I have a wee prog called StopIt by MacDevelopment [ http://www.McDev.com ] It identified two instance of explorer.exe running at the same time. I killed one, the task bar disappeared and did not return. I went to StopIt again, and the second instance was still there, but no task bar. I killed it too. I returned to Task Manager and fired up explorer.exe again, and then returned to StopIt. Neither the ghost image was there, nor was the extra version of explorer.exe This seemed to accomplish the same end as the debugging of explorer.exe in Process Explorer.

I am going to delete my system restore points again. It did not work to eliminate the return of it last time...and reboot. I'll return here in a bit, to edit this note with what happened.

In the meantime, here is some other reading as to what was previously done so I don't lose that info.

The Dr. was brought into the discussion but it provided no opportunity to do anything with it...no command options to have it produce anything.

I went to the *.log file and opened it up... there did not seem to be any pattern as to a particular "program" but there seemed to be a consistent complaint:

"WARNING: Stack unwind information not available. Following frames may be wrong. *** ERROR: Symbol file could not be found. Defaulted to export symbols for c:\windows\srchasst\srchui.dll - "

The *.dll reference was different each time, but the warning and error seemed to be the same... I suppose that I will need to direct whatever to the Symbol file. I did download the symbols for the debugger some time back, but did not know what to do with them. Should I go someplace in the register to enter a command to go someplace to find them...and do I need to do much with the folder in which the file is?

Here is an example of the last complaint in Dr. Watson's log... I checked out your MS reference which was supposed to assist in the translation but it was no help, because what it described, did not appear to be here... Nor, does it plainly describe where one problem's record starts and stops and another starts and stops...
