    Hi there!
    I have a problem getting my programs including AOL to come up.
    I was told I have too many programs running at the same time
    and that I need a MSCONFIGURATION......
    I was told I could solve this problem temporarily by pressing
    CNT-ALT-DEL and closing some of the open programs. However
    this is only temporarily......therefore I cant shut down the computer
    otherwise I have to do it all over again.
    Can anyone help me to solve this problem permanently?? I am
    using Windows 98.
    Thank you very much in advance......

    Terry

    start
    run
    in the box type msconfig
    enter
    on the general tab tick selective start up and uncheck process autoexec.bat and process config.sys
    on the start up tab
    all that's necessary to be checked in 98\se is systemtray, scanregistry. It's wise to have your firewall and anti-virus checked also. click apply, apply then okay and select yes when asked if you want to now reboot.

    You do have a firewall and anti-virus, don't you.
