    I made the stupid mistake using some Registry Cleaner,and now I cannot
    access the Devise Manager in Control panel/System. Cannot access through My
    Computer, Windows Explorer, etc....
    Can you tell me how to restore the files I need?
    I am running MS Win 98SE

    Also clicking .'Modem',' network', 'add new hardware' in addition to
    'system' in Control panel will not work either .
    Any corrective ideas?

    How to Manually Restore the Windows 98/Me Registry

    Press and hold down the "Control" key during bootup until
    the Boot Menu appears, then select "5. Command prompt only".
    At the DOS prompt type "scanreg /restore" (Note the space)
    (You may need to type "cd c:\windows\command" if you get "bad command")
    Scan through the list and see if there's a date available when all was
    working correctly. If yes, restore that one, reboot.

    You might have to re-setup Windows using the CD that you installed it with.
    This will mean aftwards you might have to reinstall some programs you might
    have added or setup some things for the internet and email again.
