    Check what where? Bottom left of what?

    It has been 7 years since I have seen the welcome screen in Win98se
    but the first time I saw the welcome screen there was some ungodly
    music that accompanied it awful shit. Looking closely at the screen
    I noticed a tiny little check box with something like "show this
    welcome screen every time windows starts" I unchecked it and haven't
    seen it since. :) The check box was located near the bottom left
    side of the Welcome Window. Good Luck

    Actually it does. In Windows 95 and 98 (probably ME, but I never ran it)
    with a new install, there is a screen that loads when Windows starts. At the
    bottom left of that "Welcome Screen" (which is, after all, what the post
    subject line is asking about) is a check box that says "Show this each time
    Windows starts" or something like that. Remove the checkmark, and it doesn't
    come back.

    Well, aren't you a clever one for knowing/guessing what she and the OP
    meant? :)

    To be honest, I had no idea what the OP meant by 'the welcome screen'. In
    light of that, being told to click something on the 'bottom left' meant even
    less! I felt a certain amount of guessing or presumption was required to
    know that's what the OP meant.
