lately i've been having this problem where when i bootup it automatically says "Its now safe to turn off your computer" that is, it says this after the windows 98 screen. Before i could overcome this problem with scanreg/restore but now it just doesnt work and everytime this problem occurs i have to delete the video card in safe mode then reboot and then it'll work after installing the video card. This problem occurs once about once a month. Please Help.

IF it is once a month I think I could live that. I mean I wouldn't worry about. :)

You could try updating your video card drivers.

Updating your mobo drivers could also help. If it's Via, updating the 4in1 drivers usually cleans a few bugs.

This behavior can occur if the Vmm32.vxd or Wininit.exe file is missing or damaged.  Wininit.exe can be extracted from the installation CD.  If the problem is the Vmm32.vxd file, you will have to run setup after renaming  Vmm32.vxd to Vmm32.old.  Use the link above for more information.
