DiSse told me that Scanreg/fix for Win98 but in ME ?
Problem, on a friends pc a Tiny of all small things. Pun.
Sometimes it won't boot and says things like insert Boot disk, sometimes it will start in Safe Mode, sometimes it will then show a corrupted graphcis in safe mode desktop and error did show registry file missing or corrupt.
Switch the PC on and keep hitting F8 until you get a menu. Choose Safe Mode Command Prompt Only and press Enter. When you get to the C:\ prompt type scanreg /restore and press enter.You will get a list of the last 5 backed up registries and dates. Choose a date that is nearest to the date before the problem occurred, press Enter and the Registry will be restored. Don't forget the space between scanreg and /restore.
