"CacheWriteDelay" to contain a Decimal value of 2000, I could not find the
"CacheWriteDelay" in the

WINDOWS 95/98 E-NEWSLETTER for 01/02/02

Hi,

Yep, thats because you need to add it. Here is an extract from the Microsoft tech note describing how to do that. The complete tech note can be found at...

(remove spaces from the above URL)


Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).

Locate and click the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

On the Edit menu, point to New , and then click DWORD Value .
Type CacheWriteDelay to name the new value, and then press ENTER.

Right-click the CacheWriteDelay value, and then click Modify .

Under Base , click Decimal .

In the Value data box, type 2000 , and then click OK .

Quit Registry Editor.

Shut down and restart the system. Allow it to finish running Scandisk and wait for the Windows desktop to appear. Then, shut down and restart again to check if Scandisk runs at startup.

Hope this helps,
Cheers,
Tim.
