Usually when I get one, I have several Explorer windows open, Word and Outlook Express amd maybe a couple of other porgrams.
After I see that gray area, I start shutting things down, and it usually reappears before I have to completely reboot. But, as soon as I can get things to the point where I can reboot, I do, then the gray, blank window stays away for quite a while.

Is this something you would consider to be a bug? Or a hardware problem?
I can go into the menu of lists and click on each one, most come up OK and others (ie: fact, missing info, marriage, place, repository & place) come up gray. A real pain.

Most times shutting down any other open programs will allow you to continue, but do as Alfred says and when you reach a point that you can reboot, do so, as those memory areas of Win98 are running out of room and will eventually do the same thing. only rebooting will clear all the memory problems.
