I use Windows ME and have system restore which I value greatly. My daughter uses Windows 98 and does not have it on her computer. Is there any place that she can get that to download?

To restore Windows 98se to an earlier time:

Under normal circumstances, Windows is capable of detecting and recovering from registry errors automatically.
If Windows is incapable of this, a previous copy of the registry can be restored manually.
Windows makes and stores a backup of the registry when you start your computer successfully each day.
By default, five previous copies or the registry are stored. To restore one of these previous copies:


1. Start your computer, press and hold CTRL, and then choose Safe Mode Command Prompt Only from the Windows 98
Startup menu.

2. At the MS-DOS prompt, type cd\windows\command and then press ENTER.

3. At the C: prompt, type scanreg /restore, and then press ENTER. scanreg /restore note space between "g and /"

4. Select the previous registry you want to restore, and then press ENTER.NOTE: A properly working registry has the word
"Started" next to the date.

5. When you receive notification that you restored a properly working registry, press ENTER to restart your computer.
