    I just installed PaperPort on my other computer, and when I rebooted it, when it gets to the Windows screen, the powerddown message comes up and it powers down. Can't get to safe mode, can't use boot disk, any suggestions ?

    I didn't find anything at PaperPort site to help me, so I reinstalled Win98se on top of itself and wala, no more power down problems.
    I do have another problem, at bootup, I get "WININIT.EXE can not be run from within Windows".
    BTW I had this problem before the power down problem.
