My machine is running on Windows 98 and every time it is in the process of booting up at the front end user interface it just freezes - nothing else happens.
On one occasion I hit ctrl alt del just before it froze and noticed that there were about 20 Waol in the current task lists so I think that it was trying to open these all up and it just crashes because it cannot handle this.
I do not know how to sort this out. I did notice that in the startup tab in msconfig that a web dialer was initiated so that is why aol was trying to load it up, I deselected it from the startup list and my machine went bananas again.
I then managed to go back to the startup list in msconfig and selectd it again and it worked okay after that.
