Do you mean Windows 3.1?

I won't be around later but someone else will be happy to help you but you need to give us some more background info on the PC. Was it working fine and then just started acting up? If so, was any software or hardware installed prior to the problem occuring. Any info on what has occurred will help.

What Operating System (OS) version are you running? Win3.1, Win95, Win98 FE or SE, WinME? Win=Windows. There is no Windows 6. Are you referring to Internet Explorer web browser 6.0?

If you have a Startup (boot) Disk for your OS version, insert it in the [A] (floppy) drive and restart your computer. At the A:\> ([A] prompt) type, sys c:, note the space between the s and c, and press the Enter key. Shortly you should see a message - 'System files transferred'. At that point you'd remove the floppy from the drive and restart the computer by holding down the Ctrl + Alt + Del keys simulataneously. Does your computer start up to Windows normally now?
