If anyone can help...
Earlier today, I was checking email in Outlook 2000, checked a link in a newsletter to open IE5.5x when appeared several 'blue screens'.
When I did the 3 fingered salute, and the system shutdown, on reboot I was told to:
Choose Command Prompt only (on Setup menu)and run SCANREG.
and that Registry errors were found &
HIMEM.SYS, CONFIGSYS, IFSHLP.SYS were missing and/or corrupt;
and WIN.COM couldnot be found and Windows could not continue to load.
leaving then a C:\ prompt
typing SCANREG was invalid in any way or form.
Calling Tech Support was of no help.
I can navigate my files through DOS but was wondering
1. how do I fix this and restore Windows
2. and/or is it possible to copy files from W98 to disk in DOS in case I need wipe the HD?
I have some files that I had yet had time backup from the weekend... :-(
