I was using RHIDE, and I had gone to the DOS prompt through RHIDE.  Somehow,
I forgot that I was using RHIDE.  I opened up some large program, exited,
and when I exited the command prompt (thinking I would go back to Win95) it
went back to RHIDE... It looked normal, but when I did an Alt+X to exit
RHIDE, the cursor went nuts and I just did a Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up
Win95's task manager so I could kill it.  That's not the bug though.

Now, I thought everything was normal, until I went to the command prompt
again, by doing a start->run->command, and if I alt+tab to other apps or
make the command prompt a dos-in-a-box (alt+enter), the title bar/button on
the task bar for my command prompt says "RHIDE Version 1.4 - COMMAND".  I've
tried restarting, I've tried looking through the Registry and all the init
files, I've tried doing various things in RHIDE, and I've tried
re-installing Windows, and nothing has worked... Im stuck.  Every time I use
the command prompt and make it a box or switch to other apps, it says RHIDE
on it.

Is there anything that I can do to make it so it just says MS-DOS Prompt on
it again?  Is there some way to write an application that changes the title
back to MS-DOS Prompt (after all, RHIDE is a DOS app, and it changes its own
title...)?

Thanks to anyone who can help.  Please e-mail me, I don't check the group or
the list-serv very often.
