When you run Microsoft Backup, Microsoft Anti-Virus, or Microsoft Defragmenter (Defrag) on some AST laptop computers, the screen (specifically the borders of dialog boxes) do not display correctly. Characters within the dialog boxes are readable, but the borders are not.


To work around this problem, use one of the following switches when you start the MS-DOS 6 or 6.2 application:
   Backup      /LCD or /BW or /MDA
   Defrag      /LCD or /BW
   Anti-Virus  /LCD or /BW or /MONO or /NF
