    [HIDE]A message telling you that the system wasn't shut down correctly and that Windows wants to run a check on the hard drive. This happens when you are forced to pull the plug because the dreaded unstable OS refuses to shut down :x

    Answer is C[/HIDE]

    naw i'm not blaming them, just saying that the power (electricity) would go out often back then, where i lived, so i got well aquainted with "the thing that happens after a blackout-caused reset". :D

    [HIDE]C) A message saying Windows is running Scandisk[/HIDE]

    EDIT: Heh, Icons in the toolbar have changed round. Pressing the hide icon gives you PHP tags and vice versa.
