I was just checking the startup files under "system configuration utility",
and noticed this entry.

DXM6Patch_981116 p_981116.exe /Q:A

Checking properties on this file (p_981116.exe) I find:

Description: Win32 Cabinet Self-Extractor
Company name: Microsoft Corporation
Internal name: Wextract
Product name: Microsoft(R) Windows NT(R) Operating System
Version: 4.71.1015.0

I'm running Windows 98 (Original)

Anyone know where this file (patch) came from? Is it a "left-over" from some
program I install and then uninstalled? Some Beta perhaps?

email me at

It's a leftover from a DirectX 6.0 upgrade. It was supposed to run once and
go away but on some systems it sticks around. You can un-check the line in
MSCONFIG and then delete the executable file.
