I set MSCONFIG to disable Scandisk after a bad shutdown but my computer ingores this and still runs Scandisk whenever I reboot without a full shutdown. Another computer I have with the same settings works fine. What should I look for to get it working properly?
WINDOWS 98 SE 128 RAM

To prevent  this, add the line AUTOSCAN=0 to the [Options] section of the Msdos.sys File.

okay from the msconfig it self you will see a general tab. Now right below the tab there is an advance button. Click it. Now you will see a few checkboxes. Now select disable scandisk after bad shutdown. Restart your system and this will do the trick

Does it display a message before the Scandisk starts?  Read that message...I have seen ScanDisk do this if it detects that there are bad sectors on the harddrive.  Does it automatically do a surface scan?  If so, then you do most likely have bad sectors on the harddrive, which could indicate that your harddrive is failing.  Be sure to backup all important data on this drive ASAP!

Is the scandisk that is running Microsoft's scandisk or is it from another company, like maybe Norton?
