    Hiya

    Did you do as suggested here:

    http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?t=327667

    I see you said its on a school network, so not sure how much you'll be able to do. As you were using it a few days ago, when the other thread was posted, can you try a restore:

    Boot to DOS. If you can get there, pop in a floppy (when turned off) so that it gets to the A prompt. Then, type

    cd: c:\

    Then, type

    scanreg/restore

    and pick a date prior to this problem. Don't pick the oldest date.

    Regards

    eddie
