  • want quick Win 98 bootup

    I'm running windows 98 in my laptop and want to know some tricks on how to work things around to make it boot up faster. It takes like several minutes to get everything loaded before i can click icons. Any advice would be great thanks

    You could use MSconfig and take everything out of your startup you don't need. Disable any hardware you don't need/aren't using. Uhh... you could also change your shell to something different, but that's a little more advanced. What programs do you use particularly?

      Or search on Win98 Lite a comercial solution for small drive space and quick boot times.

          Right, how long before he asks if someone can send him the code?

            98 lite did nothing for my boot times and left me with a unstable, semi functioning system.

            hope you have more fun than i did.

                  You know how, say you are working on something tricky and you
                  hold your mouth a certain way.

                        Funny you should mention that. I was talking to someone one day and
                        said the same phrase as before, totally innocent. But the conversation
                        was a little different and could be taken the other way...boy everyone
                        got a laugh.
