    Using W98

    About 50% of the time, when I boot up my PC it locks out immediately after the boot is finished at the point when desktop appears. I then boot again and it works okay. Anyone know why or can advise? I have tried removing and adding various programs from start menu, to no avail. Thanks in anticipation.

    W98 is a pain to try and fix.... have you tried the usual suspects?
    Update virus software and do a full system virus scan
    Get some anti-spyware software that runs on W98, update it and do a full system scan,
    Do disk defragmenting and scan disk,
    Does win98 have msconfig?
    Go to start - run type Msconfig, go to the start up tab disable all programs you don't need or don't know about in there,
    Good luck!

    Thanks Lisa, but I have done all that. I think my only option will be to reinstall W98.
