The results in order :
1] select the Process System.ini file check box and select the Process Win.ini file check box
Booted up ok but on trying to load game [ to see what would happen ] it blue screened pretty much straightaway then on pressing Enter to try to continue it went back to desk top.
2] Please uncheck the system.ini file 1st then restart
It booted up but with screen settings/resolution changed, so icons were large and screensaver lost most of its appearance quality [ similar to safe mode appearance ]
3] if no change untick the Win.ini file and restart
Same result as above, and could`nt load game because of the resolution change.
Will try again but will reset resolution after its all booted up and will report back on results [ cos I did`nt think to do that before, doh ! ].
Edited to add :
Tried resetting the resolution after doing steps 2 and 3 again but could`nt do it - to change it I had to reboot after selecting my usual resolution but on reboot it responded to the changed msconfig settings so it just rebooted to the low resolution anyway - did`nt occur to me that the changed msconfig would just over ride me trying to change resolution when a re-start is required to do it
