Going crazy with Win 98

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by [email protected], Dec 17, 2004.

  1. I have big problems with sections of Win 98 not working caused by a reg scan
    which then deleleted important files.

    I have had several responses of help through this web site but still have
    the problems with my Win 98.

    I do not want to do a reinstall as I should be able to correct the problems
    with a little help from this newsgroup.

    Lots of info here, with links to other MSKB articles:

    "How To Backup, Edit, and Restore the Registry in Windows 95, Windows
    98, and Windows Me":

    An indication of what the problems are might help ..
    That would depend on what you screwed in the registry and what you've done
    since to 'rectify' it .. bearing in mind that doing nothing and getting help
    from a different computer would have been the best bet, IMHO.

    As would a re-install 'over the top' of your current installation, thus
    keeping many of your settings / files etc.

  4. '98 keeps 5 backup copies of the registry. You can start to a dos prompt (F8
    and chose option), then type "scanreg /restore" and chose a date from
    before the registry cleaner ran.
