If it is hanging how about configuring your swap file and rebooting and try that.

Does the DOS box appear after Windows has booted? If so, check the start-up portion of the registry (maybe msconfig missed something). In 98 (run regedt32.exe I think), I believe it's the same as XP, which is HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\.

If you want to check the autoexec, start Notepad and open C:\autoexec.bat. Look for any lines that refer to whatever's opening. For example, you might find C:\Windows\Match.exe or C:\Progra~1\<something>\matchli.com or any entry that appears related to whatever's causing that DOS box.

Good luck...

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
