    If you're using Win98/ME You can disable Scandisk at startup by going to Start, Run, type Msconfig, and then click OK.
    Click Advanced, and select the Disable Scandisk after bad shutdown option.
    Click OK twice, and then click Yes to restart your computer.

    After disabling ScanDisk on startup, you can still run ScanDisk manually as in the instructions above. If you change your mind, you can also turn on ScanDisk on startup if you uncheck Disable ScanDisk as noted in the second procedure.
    If it is to be me, it is to be me.

    This occurs because something did not shut down correctly. Usually it is a driver.
    Other causes are corrupt screen savers, power settings or a corrupt sound file.

    If you use Win98 SE read the following:
