Also at start up I get a panel telling me I have "no AutomaticSkip Drive critical problems on this M/C". there seems to be no way of gettig rid of this. Any help appreciated Regards Dave
is an integral part of some versions of MS Office 2000, but not of others. Whether or not it will be installed as part of Office is dependent upon which version you have.
Automatic Skip Driver (ASD) identifies failures that have caused Win98SE to stop responding on previous startups and marks them so they are bypassed on subsequent startups. The message is telling you that all is well. Offhand I can't tell you how to stop it displaying, because I don't currently have access to a Win98 machine, but you may find an option in the system configuration settings. I suggest that you go to the help files and type ASD into the search box, although someone who uses the same Windows version may post the information here.
