Windows 98 in safe mode

I need to run a program on CD to remove NIS 2003.

How can I run the CD (mouse doesn't work!)in safe mode?

Is it a USB mouse? You may need a ps2 mouse.

Or try moving around with the tab keys and press enter on "myc omputer" then on "cd rom" and so on.

CD not visible in safe mode either I htink.

Copy file to desktop and run from there with tab keys.

Am not sure if CD works in Safe mode, it did not in win98 but may have moved on with XP. If it will not work copy CD to desktop and run from that copy

PS if you are having probs, Why not restore the Registry to before you loaded Nis. It gives the last five good restor reg start ups, shut down to DOS and type SCANREG /RESTORE press enter use arrow key to select date and press enter
