    I was cleaning out my temp internet files a couple of days ago. When I was done it said I needed to restart my computer. I thought that was weird, but did it anyway. After doing so I cannot get back on to my computer. When it started back up it got to the Windows 98 splash screen then prompted me for my 98 key code. I entered that, then it asked for the directx 6.0 executable. I don't know where to find that. Can I find that on my 98 CD or on my computer somewhere? Any help would be great. Thanks.

    The first thing that I would try is to restore to a previous restore point prior to the day you cleared the temp files. Tap f8 repeatedly while the computer is booting up. When you get to the startup menu, select command prompt (#5) Type in scanreg/restore then press the enter key which will get you into system restore. Select a date prior to your problem. Restore then restart your computer. Hope this fixes it for you.

    I've never heard of anyone being prompted to restart a computer after deleting temporary internet files(which is typically done by opening Internet Explorer, then clicking Tools - Internet Options - Delete Files).
