Msg--auto Adjust In Progress


As my system is loading, a black box appears in the center of the screen with the message:
AUTO ADJUST IN PROGRESS
What does it mean and how do I get rid of it?
Just started yesterday. I was printing and suddenly everything stopped. I was not able to get out to shut down or get to the task manager using Ctrl-Alt-Delete to see what had stopped working. So I disconnected the printer. Then I manually shut the system down and restarted. This is when the message popped on the screen.
I am using Win98 OS with IE. Any suggestions, please.
Thanks
Claire

Sounds like a hardware problem, possibly with your monitor. Are you sending your post from that computer?

Suggest we try substuting the video and/or the monitor to see if either make any difference. Think that's the only thing that one can adjust, off hand. Do you have access to another computer? Or parts? Doubt it's serious if computer is working otherwise.

I am getting the same problem: Auto Adjust in Progress. It just started two days ago. I'm running Windows XP. I think it's some kind of virus. Anyone know how to get rid of it.

I've seen a similar message when using some monitors. The "Auto Adjust" window in that case was not a Windows box, but popped up from the monitor, just as the monitor settings would if you were using the monitor's adjustment buttons.

When this windows pops up, is there a colored Title Bar visible? If so, when text is there?
