Not sure if this will help but worth a try.

Tap F8 constantly when the system starts. This would start a bootmenu and from the menu select the 5th option I guess which will be Command Prompt. Once at the C:\ prompt type -

ren config.sys config.bak [enter]

win [enter]

Any better?

I think you have 2 separate problems.

Try this, start button, run, then type msconfig and press ok......uncheck the config.sys file and reboot....does that error message go away?

tried that it didn't help
i was in selective startup so i changed to normal startup and get the following system.ini files missig
c:\ieplore\iedial.386
c:\iexplore\vxdpctcp.386
c:\ieplore\lewcomm.386

as i said before i try to restore from recycle bin and somtimes it shows the files moving sometimes not but the files don't move it may show the files moving for hours. i always get the explore performed illegal operation message and if i close it it shutdowns the program

I would reinstall Internet Explorer......your reload of Windows probably changed some file version numbers anyway.......

and NOT from the 98 cd........what version were you running prior to your overinstall?

i don't know it was an older computer and the software didn't come with it
i tried to reload my windows 98 upgrade from win95 for my old gateway and was given a message that the 98 upgrade was an older version than was already installed
the computer came from an insurance office and only had 348mb left on a 2gb hard drive. that was the reason for trying to delete so many programs. if i can't get this working i may reformatt the hard drive but don't know if i would have the drivers and everything else need. my computer i'm using online has windows xp ans i should have all the software to install it on the old computer if i have to (last option)
