WIN 98 autoexec.bat file

By computercare ·
My WIN 98 was hanging up. I have narrowed the problem to the autoexec.bat file. Has anyone had this problem, if so, what did you have to do to fix it?

WIN 98 autoexec.bat file

So you chased the problem down to the AUTOEXEC.BAT.. OK rename the file or copy it to a diskette and the delete the copy on the hard drive and boot you computer.. If it does not hang you were right.. If it does hang the you still have the problem...Use the Step by Step with confirmation option in the boot option menu.. and that should give you an idea where you problem is.. Probabilly some VXD driver causing the problem.. Simply for your information Windows 95 or 98 or ME don't need CONFIG.SYSor AUTOEXEC.BAT to boot up to the desktop.. These files are used for DOS drivers and Dos mode applications which many users don't want to give up.. Which they should..
