I am running Win98 SE and have seen some items in config.sys that have somehow been masked...  I am wondering if there is some way to remove the masking on these Items so that I may see what they actually are...

 In the past, all I bothered to do was edit them with a semicolon at the beginning of the entry so they wouldn't run, but now I am more curious than concerned... I am still unable to ID these items when they show up, even though I can disable them.

 Am I presuming correctly that they must have been masked in DOS?

Some years ago there were items on the net I could find with search engines about masked file names, but those all seem to have been dropped or removed for some reason... can you help me out??

no error messages have been involved so far in my dealings  with these items

Thanks in advance!
