Lost settings


My Windows 98 got a problem. Whenever I boot up, all my current settings are lost. Why is that? Is it memory problem or something?

At the risk of pointing out the obvious - linuxquestions.org!

Anyway. What settings you talking about? Desktop etc etc? I always used to reinstall 98 every 6 months or so to avoid such nice little problems. How are you for disk space?

cheers

Any input greatly appreciated

Yes. it's desktop setting.

I haven't used windows for a long time already. But now I have no choice. I need to write j2me programs on the siemens mobile phones. They only have their SDKs for windows I think.

Trickychiken: Don't get disheartened by all the jokes. Many users here know (or care ) little about Microsoft products. You might have better luck in this forum.

Yeah I know but I have no choice because I haven't used windows for a long time and I don't know any windows forum. I've never visit a windows forum before. It seems like you are using Windows all the time, you know such a forum. Anyway thank you man.

May I remind everyone that Windows questions are welcome here. If you have nothing constructive to say or not helpful in anyway, then don't respond, move on to the next post.

This means, try to post something can solve their question/issue or maybe post a link to another source that can be helpful to them. Like Mork supplied a link to a Windows forum were this can be asked as well, which should speed up their problem at hand.

Regards.

Trickykid: I know windows questions are welcome, but c'mon: it's like the first rule in the book that people should search first before asking any questions and I can't imagine that a windows forum or a place where windows users gather is hard to find. There still is something like goolge or altavista.
Do all those people that post windows questions here, honestly think that their question will be solved by posting on a linux forum, where a lot of the users can't even stand the smell of windows booting?
This isn't a rant, I was just wondering.

I tried to search the windows forum. I know "linuxquestions.org". So I thought that there can be "windowsquestions.org" out there and I typed this URL. But strangly, this URL forwared here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That means I thought this site obviously accept the windows questions. Now according to you, it seems like windows questions are not very welcome here. Then why the "windowsquestions.org" get forwared here.
It's like insulting the people.

low vitamin d levels in your body. you can get more vitamin d from the sun. if you aren't able to get it from the sun you can get it by eating things that have vitamin d. cats spend a great deal of time in the sun so eat a cat. if you can't bring yourself to eat the cat then second best thing to do is to lick the cat. the closer to the cats actual skin the better - the cats feet, nose, inside of ears. cats don't need too much vitamin d but their bodies produce an extremely large amount of it from their sun exposure so the best possible way for you to extract the vitamin d is to lick the cat while their body is releasing it. so lick a cats ass a feel well.

Well like I mentioned and this is to anyone who reads this and answers questions here; either help them out or don't post at all, its that simple. We don't need to flame them and remind them that this is a site mainly about Linux questions and such, I'm sure they can clearly see that already.

Just move on to the next thread, if they don't recieve an answer or whatever, then no harm is done. But posting that they need to go elsewhere and rubbing it in their face that this is a Linux only site, doesn't help any for them or for our community here.

Regards.
