Using Registry Mechanic I have ruined the Regisry
Windows gets stuck trying to find it!
I realise I have been incredible stupid s
especially as I havenot not backed up all my wife's files.I can work in safe mode. Any body got any ideas?

Can you open Registry Mechanic in Safe Mode and is there a Recovery / Undo feature?

Restart in MS-DOS mode. Type

scanreg /restore

and press Enter. You should get a list of dates to restore from.

If you can get to safe mode then you should be able to back up your wifes files to a floppy, then go to this link to repair the registry.
It refers to ME but is done in DOS command, so should work on 98SE.

....Oh dear!

What's more VoG™'s suggestion saved me a lot of aggro over the years with 98SE on mine and other systems when matters went pearshaped...:-(
