Verify that config.sys Autoexec.bat, (root directory of the hard drive) and System.ini (Windows folder) are prresent and in the right location.

Check Config.sys and Autoexec.bat for errors using the step-by-step configuration option from the Windows 9x startup menu To check System.ini, rename the file so that it will not be used and boot with a bare bones version of the file.

Look in the Win.ini file for applications that are attempting to load at startup but that have been deleted or unnstalled Check the Load=or Run=lines.
