Hi,

I'm using Win '98 and I seem to get hung up on startup at the Windows screen. The bar at the bottom will stop moving for several minutes, then start up again and loads fine. I can't remember doing anything that would start this. Any ideas?

Start up and shut down freezes seem to be a way of life with Win98, in my experience.

Here are some specific microsoft diagnostics, recently suggested by Walkeriam

Additionaly its probably worth looking at the multitude of programs that launch themselves during the inital windows start up procedure. Change one thing at a time.

On my system if I use msconfig.exe (from start_run), go into the advanced tab and change the check the setting for VGA 640x480x16, it becomes a reformed PC and all my shutdown & start up freezes vanish. Now I have to figure out that one out

Do you have a tape drive? If not you can rename three files:

They reside in
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\IOSUBSYS
drvwq117.vxd Drvwppqt.vxd Drvwcdb.vxd

Change the vxd extension to old
drvwq117.old Drvwppqt.old Drvwcdb.old

You can also rename "cdr4vsd.vxd" to "cdr4vsd.old" If you have any trouble running Easy CD Creator you can change it back.

Have you added any Software lately? Or perhaps a Modem Driver Update?
