Win98 to system restore

  postie 10:43 21 Oct 2004

Can anyone tell me how to add a system restore to a win 98

  ste_bla 10:49 21 Oct 2004

system restore first showed up in windows me therefore there is no system restore in 98

There is an option for 'last known good configuration'. Can someone remember how to get to it?

use an emergency floppy start up disc to start
the p/c

then type

scanreg /restore

and pick one of the registry back-ups to re-install

Press F8 repeatedly while booting.

At the DOS screen choose "Command Prompt only"

At the C:> prompt type scanreg /restore and <Enter>

After the screen has settled you will have a list of the last five dates when the system ran correctly. Choose one which is a little earlier than any recent trouble and Enter.

No, Windows 98.
