I use Windows 98 with a "family login" configuration. When I loggin , and you press Ctrl / Alt / Delete there are two running copies of explorer. You can "end task" the top one but the lower one crashes windows. I have searched the registry and cannot see anything that might cause it.
We have done the compare thing with my son's files that are loaded at start up. My son's loggin does not have this problem. Any thoughts on how this could be loaded and what program might be doing this at loggin.

Thanks Bill Reid

Try this. Find the file <your login name>.pwl (probably in c:\) and rename it to something. Anything should be fine. <your login name>.bak  is safe. Re-boot, re-log back in and see if that fixes it.
