After partitioning the HDD - when startup has finished it now opens up the C:\Program Files folder by default (?)
How do I stop this?
( OS is WIN98SE )

Two things you can try.
First. Go into your start menu, programmes, startup. check to see if the directory you mentioned is in there. if it is, delete it.

second. go to start menu, run then type, msconfig and press ok. next go across to start up. browse through the list and see if its there. if it is, untick it. if not move onto the win.ini tab and try and find it there. if not try the boot.ini tab.

hopefully you will find it in one of these places. when you restart, regardless of if you find it or not, a message will appear on next start up. just say 'dont display this again'.

Thanks Kev
How do I access the Boot.ini - checked everywhere else but couldn't find that tab?
