Hi danny0001uk. Windows 98 doesn't need AUTOEXEC.BAT or CONFIG.SYS, and these only run in case there is a DOS based function that is wanted before Windows is loaded. In the messages you have quoted, some of the AUTOEXEC.BAT commands have had REM added to them to tell your computer that they are only comments (REMarks), and are to be ignored. Use notepad to open AUTOEXEC.BAT. save it as AUTOEXEC.OLD, just so you can reuse it in future, then put REM at the beginning of any lines that don't already have it, and save the file as AUTOEXEC.BAT.
