    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

    You can also go here and download a program called BootLog Analyzer. After running it on your computer, copy and paste the results back here and we will take a look at it.

    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?
