Chapter 2. Starting and Quitting Windows... > Starting Windows After Technical Pro...

Starting Windows After Technical Problems Occur

Windows is guaranteed to fail occasionally. These failures and their recovery are handled more automatically in Windows 98 than in previous versions of Windows.

Checking for Drive Errors with ScanDisk

Should Windows be shut down incorrectly or if errors on your hard disk are detected, Windows automatically runs ScanDisk, a program that checks for invalid filenames, file and folder name-length errors, magnetic surface errors on the drive, and more. If you start your computer and ScanDisk begins running, usually your best option is to let it run using its default settings. You can run ScanDisk at any time to manually check your hard drive.
