I recently formatted and went back to Win98.But I noticed there is no System restore to a previous point tool.Isn't there a restore in 98?I thought there was.And if there is,how come it's not in Start>Programs>Accessories>System tools?Where would it be?Thanks...Rick

Only Windows ME and Windows XP has System Restore.
You have scanreg restore from dos in Win 98 that can resolve some issues..

Just a bit of clarification.........
The command from C:>Prompt is Scanreg /Restore note the space between the g and forward slash.

Thanks Dave-I had that written down on a old piece of note paper and couldn't see it very clearly. Have been using Cabrest for awhile.

Davey-Got to wondering about how I use to restore. Tried the restore without the space and it worked the same. The forward slash was necessary.

For just plain old general info....you usually type a switch with a space then the / say, format C: /s Again, usually,you would get a bad command or a parameters wrong message back if typing not exactly what DOS wants....anybody got the latest word on how or why the restore works without the space?
