First Time Start Screen Displayed Every Time You Start Windows 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The information in this article applies to:

Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition 
Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition 
Microsoft Windows 98 
Microsoft Windows 95

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



SYMPTOMS
After you upgrade to Windows 95/98/Me, you may see the "Getting Ready To
Run Windows For The First Time" screen every time you start your computer.




CAUSE
This behavior can occur if the Windows Setup program does not remove the
Logo.sys file from the root folder. 



RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, rename the Logo.sys file in the root folder. To do
so, use the following steps: 

Restart your computer. For Windows 95, when you see the "Starting Windows
95" message, press F8, and then choose Safe Mode Command Prompt Only from
the Startup menu. For Windows 98 and Windows Me, press and hold the CTRL
key until the Windows 98 or Windows Me Startup menu appears, and then
choose Safe Mode Command Prompt Only from the Startup menu. 


Type the following lines, pressing ENTER after each line: 
attrib -s -h -r logo.sys
ren logo.sys logo.old 



Restart your computer.
