Have win 98 which when turning on the copmuter goes into scandisc and the starts scanning c drive for bad sectors
It say there are several and then says fix or ignore

This always happens on turning on the computer
I tried the fix option but seems to take ages

Is there away to stop it going through this rutine at load up and just ignore the bad sectors

thamks

Make sure you shut down windows instead of just turning the powre off.
