Hi doobie, tell us what operating system you are running (Win95, Win98, WinME), and maybe we can find some tools to help us pinpoint the problem.

The Startuplog application, available at the site below will work with any of those systems. If you download, unzip, run it and copy/paste the Startuplog.txt file (not stubbpaths) it creates in your next reply, it will help us spot anything that might be causing the problem.

If you don't have a zip tool, use the unzipped version available through the IE Only link at the very bottom of the page.

REM Notes:
REM DOSSTART.BAT is run whenenver you choose "Restart the computer
REM in MS-DOS mode" from the Shutdown menu in Windows. It allows
REM you to load programs that you might not want loaded in Windows,
REM (because they have functional equivalents) but that you do
REM want loaded under MS-DOS. The two primary candidates for
REM this are MSCDEX and a real mode driver for the mouse you ship
REM with your system. Commands that you want present in both Windows
REM and MS-DOS should be placed in the Autoexec.bat in the
REM \Image directory of your reference server. Please note that for
REM MSCDEX you will need to load the corresponding real-mode CD
REM driver in Config.sys. This driver won't be used by Windows 98
REM but will be available prior to and after Windows 98 exits.
REM
REM This file is also helpful if you want to F8 boot into MS-DOS 7.0
REM before Windows loads and access the CD-ROM. All you have to do
REM is press F8 and then run DOSSTART to load MSCDEX and your real
REM mode mouse driver (no need to remember the command line parameters
REM for these two files.
REM
REM - You MUST explicitly specify the CD ROM Drive Letter for MSCDEX.
REM - The string following the /D: statement must explicitly match
REM the string in CONFIG.SYS following your CD-ROM device driver.

REM MSCDEX.EXE /D:OEMCD001 /l:d
REM REM MOUSE.EXE

C:\PROGRA~1\LOGITECH\MOUSEW~1\MOUSE.EXE

doobie, we need the whole log, not just the index. Just click Edit>select all>then Edit>Copy -- paste that in your previous post. (click the "edit' icon at the lower right of it)

Also what OS are you running?
