Why does opening Windows 98 screen always say: "Getting ready to run Windows for the first time."

This started only after I upgraded to Windows 98 Second Edition.

It supposed to since you've never run win98 SE before, eventhough you reinstall the same version of windows, you still get the that opening screen but once only.

After you upgraded, did you register?  Does a right click on My Computer reflect the correct and current version of Windows as installed on your system AND that is is registered?
