Win 98 start

A program can be started automatically at bootup if a shortcut to the program is in your Startup folder

(which is inside of your Start Menu folder).

Older programs might still install themselves in your WIN.INI file (on the same line that starts with

‘LOAD=’). Use Notepad to edit this file.

Some drivers can also display errant messages, and are loaded from your Registry (do a search to find

them) and in your SYSTEM.INI file (use Notepad to edit this file).

Also, programs may specified in your Registry, in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Run.

Programs notorious for putting things in these places include backup utilities that automatically load

their useless scheduler programs, and the software that comes with older versions of Micrsoft mice and

keyboards.
