DARKSKYE, I remember quite a while ago I ran win98 startshere and it crashed my system.

Start your computer with your startup floppy disc and at the A:\> prompt Type scanreg/restore it should look like this

A:\>scanreg/restore and press enter key then choose a date befor your problem and press enter. then reboot when it's restored the registry

You can restore the registry without a floppy.......You need to keep pressing F8 as you boot on switching on, (straight after the option to enter the BIOS, and before Windows starts to load.

When the screen clears you will have 5 options... Choose "Command prompt only"........ At the C:> prompt, type as woodchip said, C:> scanreg/ restore .......but don't omit the space!

Sooner or later you must decide how much you need "Win 98 Start here" with recap's remark to consider?

Work's OK without the space!!!!!

I am assuming Darkskye has windows 98se o/s. So have I and I press the Ctrl key to boot into the the 5 options you were talking about, not F8!!

  woodchip 18:55 17 Mar 2003

Ctrl key does not always work on Win98, that's why Diemmess said what he said and I agree as it alway's works if you keep pressing F8 as it starts
