    I have Mac OS 10.2.8 running on a G4 tower. I have software that will only run in Classic mode, and each time my Classic mode kicks in an annoying blank error box (gray with a red band across top) appears in center screen which can't be moved, selected, nothing. This box has no text in it, and the only way to make it disappear is to force quit Classic. Any ideas?

    Two things you can try, both from the Classic system prefpane: Most likely you can get a result by playing with the extensions under startup options. See if Classic will start if you Turn Off Extensions. If it does you can Open Extensions Manager and turn off all extensions, then turn them on again, one or a couple of them, at the time until it crashes again, and you have your culprit. If this doesn't help I would try clicking the Rebuild Desktop button, it won't hurt, anyway.

    Also repairing permissions etc in Jaguar also cannot hurt. :)
