After loading RegAnalizer I deleted something under software and now Windows 98 is messed up and will not respond or load. Display messed up it wants to check for new hardware but then it stops working. Help me please.

Boot your PC from a Windows 98 Startup diskette, pop your Windows CD in the drive and run Setup WITHOUT formatting first.

With a bit of luck (depending on what form your Windows CD is) that will overwrite your system files and get things working again.


Utilities which make regid=stry changes shouldn't be used without first working out a bit about what it is they do. They're really for 'advanced' users.

Before reloading ,when you boot computer with the bootdisk at the a: prompt type in SCANREG /FIX to see if it will repair your registry .or SCANREG /RESTORe and try to restore back to a earlier date ,you should get a choice of 5 different ones.
