A computer running UltiVist locked up and was rebooted. Each reboot brings it right back to its locked up state.

Issue

A computer running UltiVist locked up and was rebooted.  Each reboot brings it right back to its locked up state.  How can this be prevented?

Environment

OS/2

UltiVist

Cause

A task or program does not execute properly and causes OS/2 to lock up with no response from keyboard or mouse.

Resolution

Boot up from the installation diskettes to gain access to a command prompt.  On the hard drive, modify the config.sys file to include the following lines:

set restartobjects=startupfoldersonly
set autostart=programs,tasklist,folders,warpcenter

These lines will prevent the computer from running programs or tasks that lead to its locked up state.
