Default Win 98 Boot Issue

When I boot my PC with Win 98, I get this one script that says;
c:/set tvdumpflag =10. Anyone know what this is. I've done a google search, but came up empty.

It looks like some installed software defined a system variable in your autoexec.bat file. Did you install something new recently?

It's not mine, the lady doesn't know what it is, and I don't either. So I'm kinda hooped I think, but it'd be great if it could be resolved.

Got exactly the same entry in mine. It appeared after I installed Borland C++ compiler etc.

Even if there is no software like this on your system, chances are there was at some time & when it was unistalled, that entry was left behind.

If you don't want to delete that line straight away, just rem it out instead.

Instructions below are actually for commenting out the line instead of using rem. (commented lines are not displayed on boot up whereas rem's often are. Rem is short for remark).

Go to Run.. on the start menu.
Type sysedit - this will open basic system files for editting.
From the files opened by sysedit, select autoexec.bat

Where it reads C:/set tvdumpflag = 10, insert 2 colons at the start of the line so its reads :

::C:/set tvdumpflag = 10

Save & exit sysedit. Next time you boot up, the line won't be processed or displayed on screen.
