Setup updating config. files at every restart ?

  bloo meeny 21:20 13 Mar 03

For about a week now, when restarting my pc, it displays the message below EVERY TIME when booting up/ restarting.
Surely, this should only happen when something has been modified ?
Message only shows for a few seconds but two questions...

1) Should I be concerned ?(computer seems to be ok)
2) Any way to stop this happening ?

Windows 98SE, by the way.
Thanks for any help !

Please wait while Setup updates your configuration files.
This may take a few minutes.

Completed updating files - continuing to load windows.

I have noticed this recently but dont know the cause. I am running Windows ME

Some games will cause this. For instance, SimGolf and the like.

O/S Win98SE. Funny but I`ve had the same messages this last week !
Annoying rather than anything else. No games loaded; Thanks for airing it bloo meeny.

I have found that Ad-aware causes this when it has found a problem.

(found in computer magazine)

Find the Wininit.ini file (should be in Windows folder) and rename it to Wininit.old

Restart PC and messages are gone !
