Hello Everyone,
i recently got a Win98 SE Pc on a WorkGroup on a Lan at home,
but since i got it working every time, just after loggin in, i got a msg in swedish, i can't tell you what it is about because i have no idea, but it's verry strange because the only languages which i work with on computers are mostly French and English, i never but never configured something in swedish,
actually i'm not sure it's swedish, i took a few words on it and typed it on google.com and there where mostly ".se" swedish sites comming up ...
where can i configure it to get that msg in english to solve the problem ???
Thanks to everyone

Elvis

Using the Windows System Configuration Utility (startup)


Windows 98, ME, and XP have MSCONFIG

*****************
Windows 2000 doesn’t have msconfig but you can use it, if you...
Download the two files here
http://www2.whidbey.com/djdenham/Msconfig.htm
OR
http://www.perfectdrivers.com/howto/msconfig.html
************

If annoying programs are popping up every time you boot into windows XP or log in, you can disable them with the System Configuration Utility.

Press START > RUN > type MSCONFIG to launch

When the application starts you will need to click the startup tab.

This lists all the applications that will start when you boot up or log in, you can simply untick the ones you don’t want to start and reboot (if a problem occurs you can simply re-tick it)

Most programs launch from the following registry Key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Once you are sure you no longer need the application you can launch REGEDIT and go and delete a programs value from this key (DON’T DELETE THE ENTIRE KEY!!!)
NOTE the startup list in msconfig is populated from here
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg

Any software that is listed as "Common Startup" is being launched from the startup folder (click START >PROGRAMS >STARTUP to view them.  You can delete the Icons from here  <by right clicking it and selecting delete> to stop it launching.) This only deletes the shortcut; it does not uninstall the application.

Hi Elvis1,

It looks like the installation was made in swedish, or another language like it. Or a program was installed in that language.
If you want, I can ask an expert in who's living in that area, maybe he's able to see what it's saying.

Greetings,

LucF

Just to be sure I invited Mattisflones who lives in Norway, he might be able to figure out what the error message means. Although you're talking about Swedish, he might have a clue.

Well it's says;
MsgBox Title: Microsoft-nätverk (probably network)
Det finns inte nägon domänserver tiigänglig för att betkräfta lösenordet. Du kommer eventuelt inte att kunna använda alla nätverksresurser

the buttons are Ok and Cancel ...

Yup, its swedish...

>>Microsoft-nätverk
=Microsoft network

>>Det finns inte nägon domänserver tiigänglig för att betkräfta lösenordet. Du kommer eventuelt inte att kunna använda alla nätverksresurser
=There is no available domain server to confirm your password, you might not be able to access all network resources.

So, that would mean that your pc is set up for domain access, witch obviouly is not working.. Maybe Luc or someone with W98 knowledge might help further..

Thanks Mattis,

As said by Mattis, your computer is now setup for a domain, you'll have to change this to a workgroup. I don't have win98 around, but I believe it was in the network options, at the Network Identification tab.

Start> Settings >Control Panel
Double click ‘Network’
You should now see your network adaptor (NIC or modem)
>Client for Microsoft Networks’

Ensure the Primary network logon is set to ‘client for Microsoft networks’
Than double click ‘‘client for Microsoft networks’ in the list above.
In the Logon Validation section UNTICK ‘Logon to Windows NT Domain’

delete anything on your hard drive that has a .pwl extension (unless you have 98 profiles set up yeargh!)

reboot
