I have a PC running Windows 98SE. I have recently upgraded to AOL's Broadband and have successfully used it for a few days.
However, when using the internet yesterday I got a message from AOL saying the the internet connection had been lost. Since this I can't load Windows successfully.
The PC goes through the normal boot up sequence (although it displays the primary and secondary master and slaves being found - which I don't remember from before - along with a line which says "No AT Conductor Cable Installed" - don't remember that either!) and seems to be loading Windows. It displays my wallpaper but all icons have disappeared!!! Exactly the same happens if I go into Safe Mode.
If I Ctrl/Alt/Del there appears to be absolutely nothing running.
I can load the command prompt and everything looks to be there so I guess that the c: drive integrity is okay.
