    Help!!!! I started cleaning up our office computer to make it run a little faster and have more space and now it locks up every time windows 98 begins to open. I can open it up in safe mode but can't get on the internet or run my external read-write drive. I think I have backed up the computer on D: Any suggestions? (n) :confused:

    Hi,

    Welcome to TSG.

    Without knowing whats on your system, or what you have deleted that may be causing this problem .... you could perhaps try Start > Shutdown > Restart in Dos - then once in Dos Mode type this :

    Scanreg /Restore (note the space after Scanreg.)

    You should be presented with last 5 successful Win Registries to boot up. Pick one prior to the time you made these changes (but not the very first one in the list ) and try booting into Windows.

    Although I now use Win XP - Scanreg saved me few times when I was using 98SE.


    If no luck please post back here.
