Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
After windows 98 screen appear, the log on screen show up. but when i click my user account, the error message appear like this. this program has performed an illegal operation and will be shutdown. but its not going to shutdown. only stuck to my wallpaper and the start menu wont show up
Tips for a great answer:
Enable Log-On Screen
Windows, by default, is set to show the Welcome screen during startup.
To enable the log-on screen to show, go to "Start" menu and select "Control Panel".
In the control panel, click on "User Accounts".
In the "User Accounts" dialog-box, click "Change the way users log on or off" and uncheck the "Welcome Screen" option.
Click "Apply Options" to save the changes.
Change Log-On Screen Background Color
To change the log-on screen background color, go to the "Start" menu and click on "Run".
In the run dialog-box, type "mspaint" as the name of the program to "Open".
Click on "OK". In the "Paint" window that opens, select "Colors" from the main menu and click on "Edit Colors". In the "Edit Colors" dialog-box, select "Define custom colors".
Here pick the color of your choice and note down the "Red", "Green" and "Blue" values.
Write down these values somewhere.
Click "Cancel" and close the paint window without saving. Now, go to the "Start" menu, click "Run" and enter "regedit" as the name of the program to "Open".
In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\COLORS and double-click the "Background" string.
In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, change the values in the "Value data" field to the red, green and blue color values that you wrote down (e.g. 75 78 173).
The default value will be 0 78 152. Enter the values in the correct red-green-blue order, separated by a space. Close the registry editor and log off to see the changes.
Put Image in Log-On Screen Background
To put your favorite picture in the background of the log-on screen, click "Start", then "Run", and type in "regedit". In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP and double-click the string "Wallpaper". In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, enter the full path and filename of the image that you want to use as the background. The image must be in .bmp format. Click "OK" and close the registry editor. Log off to see the changes. hope this helps
