  1. Can anyone help me out here? I have a problem with a Win 98 machine which keeps throwing up a DOS Edit page during bot up into windows. If I close it down it just carries on into windows but its a bit of a pain having to do it all the time.
    I have checked everything I can think of and nowhere can I find a command to open Edit during boot up.
    If I hit F8 and choose "Step by step confirmation" sure enough there is a line for edit, so if I select NO it doesn't appear, but which of the files is asking for Edit to run?

    If anyone can tell me which file the command line is in I can delete and hopefully resolve the problem.

    OK I got it sussed, there was a line in the Autoexec.bat file which I just rem'd out. Strange cos I swear I looked at this file before. I finally got it sussed anyway.
