my startup screen in win98 is fine but does not stop when loaded ... without waiting it loads StarOffice 5.1 five times and I have to back out of each to back up to the win98 start screen.  I do not want StarOffice 5.1 to load at this point.   Suggestions will be appreciated.

First check in your start menu programs in the startup fploder and see if it is list. Remove it.
If not go to the run command type msconfig and check the start tab. See if it is listed there uncheck it and see if it works.
If that doesn't work you will j=have to go into the registry and edit the run folders. You will find thiese folder under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/software/microsoft/wondows
