Hi Frankie,

Your best bet is probably to obtain a Windows 98 boot disk (try this link to obtain one):

http://www.bootdisk.com/original.htm

Once you've created a good boot disk, use it to boot to a DOS prompt, then format your hard drive. Then reboot (again, using the Windows 98 bootdisk), make sure that you choose to boot WITH CD-ROM support, then use your Windows CD to re-install your operating system.

This is assuming that you've backed up any important documents, and wouldn't mind having to format and re-install everything.
