I have a dell Optiplex computer with windows 98 that I nned to install the new  pci modem software on. The problem is the operating system boots up automatically and goes to the ESP Inspection Software. I need to get into windows so I can install the modem software. Hoping someone knows how I can bypass the auto loading software so I can get the modem installed.
The North Carolina state only has this software on Wiondows 98 and Windows 200 operating system and it only will transmit on dial up. I sure will be glad when they at least update it to the internet. Again I need to get into windows 98 to install the new modem as the old one went bad. HELP please !!

Did you try F8 or the Control key to go into Safe Mode?

I think it was Shift-F8 would take you straight to the Step-by-step boot, where you should be able to stop the auto run of ESP Inspection Software

If you need to temporarily stop ESP running in Normal Mode, read through this:

I had already tried all the suggestions here but due to this being locked down I never was able to get to any of this until I got with a Rep that knew the function keys that allowed me access. I have it fixed now but thanks to all for suggestions.. Again, I had already tried the most norms. I also knew it's just the way the states lock down the systems. Thanks again !!

You have to know the programed function keys to gain access and each manufacturer of the different machines are different !
