A very useful tool included with Win98 is the System Configuration Utility. Select Start > Run and type msconfig in the Open box to launch the application. The System Configuration Utility makes fiddling with programs to launch at Startup or editing autoexec.bat, config.sys etc. a lot easier. The System Configuration Utility also allows you to create a backup of your system files ? it would be a good idea to use this before you begin making changes. Be careful with what you enable or disable. Do not touch anything that you may not understand.
