win98 start up
dmh_700 Aug-17-02 12:44 PM
can anyone help, when i start my pc i get an ms-dos window on desktop. the window is called attrib. it dosnt seem to cause a problem when i close it, it just seems to be visible rather than invisible, does anyone know how i can set it back to how it should be. i have tried reloading windows-no effect and restoring all system files-no effect.

any advice would be helpful.

First, look in the Start>Programs>Startup list and see if there's any reference to MS DOS Prompt. If there is, remove it.

Second, click Start>Run... and type <msconfig> (no brackets)
Look on the Startup tab and uncheck any box that refers to MS DOS.

Best wishes...

Also, look in the win.ini with msconfig for a load or run line. Larry
