Start-up's too slow, maybe from improper shutdown?

    I have Windows 98 and an older Pentium 2 computer. It is a very slow computer, especially when I start it up. It has been improperly shut down many times(out of necessity) instead of using the shut down menu. Is there anything one can do to repair the damage done by improper shutdown and make the computer a little faster?

    heatherew.....
    Let's take a look at what you have running on this computer. Go here......

    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/index.html

    and download the Startup List 1.51 program. Run it and then copy and paste your results into your reply here.

    Good morning

    Does scan disk run after a crash/restart?

    Do you delete your temp files?
    This can really bog down a machine
    (don't forget to delete both Windows temporary files, as well as Temporary Internet Files)
    As you mention lots of crashes, you probably have lots of files you can delete
    So ... to start, you can search for and delete the following types of files
    *.TMP
    *.CHK

    Also (this seems to be my suggestion of the week!) have you updated your version of Windows lately?
    Go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com, click scan for updates, follow the bouncing ball.

    In order to assist, this will be most important to the forum members ... what is loading when you start up?
    Install and run Startup List from this site:(http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/)
    Post your complete results here and you will receive advice on what to trim and how to do it.

    cheers

    I tried to download the lurkhere.com program, but I am getting an error message saying "cannot find program.exe file." Where can I find or download this file?

    Scandisk does work after crash/restart, and I do delete my temp. files on a weekly basis.

    - do you have Winzip?
    It is required to open the zipped file
    If not, you can download a trial version at http://www.winzip.com/ddchomea.htm

    - revisiting my first questions
    Have you updated your system at windows update site?

    cheers
    MDM

    Administrators / Moderators: can we attach the unzipped StartUpList on this forum?

    Thanks, I will update my system at the windows update site, and I will try to download the free trial of Winzip. I already used a 30-day trial at Winzip, though, and don't think I can do it again. Is there another site that has a similar program?

    WeeHaw - Mulder just gave me a workaround for this ZIP issue
    I will attach the StartUpList to this thread
    I had to rename it so that the forum would accept it
    soooooooo...

    grab the attached file (StartupList.txt) - save to your deskop
    AND THEN
    rename it to StartupList.exe


    Run it and post your results here

    cheers
    MDM

    right click the attachment, save to your desktop , right click and rename it (change last 3 characters to 'exe'

    I can't get anything to work right today-on the Windows update page I can't download the updates(there's 15 of them) because on the pop-up window that says Accept/Don't Accept the license agreement, Accept is not clickable. Hope that makes sense.
     
  9. MadDogMugsy

    MadDogMugsy Guest

    yes it makes sense
    ... it's a trick :)
    You have to click inside that Agreement text to acknowledge that 'you have read it' (lol) ... after you click in here the Accept button should be available
    (I couldn't double check this though as my updates are up to date - let me know if that didn't work)

    Also, when I tried to download the StartupList.txt file, it didn't give me the option to save it to my desktop. It just downloaded, and then opened up in Notepad and it was just a bunch of symbols. Sorry to be so much trouble! When I finally do download this file, how do I rename it?
     
  11. MadDogMugsy

    MadDogMugsy Guest

    you are not too much trouble! :D that's why we are all here :D & loving every second of it

    If you haven't got it to your desktop yet - just right click on the above attachment link and choose "save as" or "save target as"
    and save to your desktop (can't remember the exact 'wording' in 98)

    Now, right click on it and select Rename and just change the last three characters to 'exe'

    :D

    I must be not thinking clearly today or something-I followed all the instructions, and I still keep getting just a bunch of symbols opened up in notepad when I download this file. Am I still doing something wrong?:confused:

    MadDogMugsy Guest

    hmmm - I am not sure why that is happening, even after you renamed the file :confused:
    - it works for me and a buddy across country I tested it on :p

    ... if you eMail me, I will give you my website address - I will post it there for you to download (unzipped)

    eMail me at [email protected]

    (that is my hobbit name - lol - I use it because we are living in my mother-in-laws basement until she turns 20 again - lol)

    per the rules ... I can't post the site here because it is a business address - mine :)

    We'll get there!
