Windows 98 start up

  Zebrapec 14:07 26 Jan 2003

Every time a start my windows 98 I get a message saying "windows 98 is updating the system" and a picture of a little drum playing.
This cannot be correct, can it?

Look in Control Panel > System > Device manager and see if there is yellow question mark or exclamation mark anywhere.

If you find one it will probably relate to something lacking a proper driver or device without a driver.

If no warning signs then...........
It is also possible that something is trying, or scheduled to run and you haven't noticed.

Try Start, > Run, > MSCONFIG and pick the Start tab. You should see listed all the programs that start when you do.
Unless you have special reason, stay with just 4 and clear the ticked boxes of the others.

The 4 you should leave are



LoadPowerProfile ..... there should be 2 of these.

Thanks Diemmess, there was a exclamation mark on my floppy drive.
