You simply can not uninstall an OS (operating system), you may have to Format the hard drive itself. If you are upgrading the OS to a version that uses NTFS, like windows xp or higher, a format is suggested. If you have a boot diskette, you can do it that way. If not you can create on using windows 98, but you will need an old floppy diskette and a drive to boot. If you have a newer OS on a CD, simply insert into the computer and follow the on-screen instructions.
If you have a boot diskette(floppy), turn off your computer. Insert the disk and turn on the computer. Let it do its thing, once the diskette loads small programs, you will be able to format the HDD(hard drive).
you will see something like this after its done loading...


type in format c:
shown like this...

c:\format c:

Proceed with fromat? (y/n)

If you are sure you want to erase everything, type in Y. The computer will now format (may take awhile) and will be ready for a new operating system!

Try running RUN and type regsvr32.exe /i shell32.dll.

This actually fixes the shell32.dll and installs it again.

RegSvr32.exe has the following command-line options:

Regsvr32 [/u] [/n] [/i[:cmdline]] dllname

/u - Unregister server
/i - Call DllInstall passing it optional [cmdline] (/i /u calls dll uninstall)
/n - do not call DllRegisterServer (must be used with /i)
/s  Silent (added with Windows XP and Windows Vista)

Hi there.

In the windows 98, start menu, and then find your way to setings, control panel. And from there passwords. Since its been a long time Since I last used a windows 98 pc I had to google the solution, here it is, copy pasted from computer hope (http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000131.htm#02)

  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Open the Passwords icon.
  3. Click the User Profiles tab
  4. Select the first option "All users of this PC use the same preferences and desktop settings."
  5. Reboot computer.
  6. After the computer boots up and no password was entered, reboot again to see if the changes fixed the computer.
My memory isn't so good that I would remember the things from 10 years ago exacly.

Well, Windows 98 is an end-of-life product. It is no longer supported by Microsoft, so no help will be coming from there. You can go to support.dell.com and enter your service tag number to download the manual for your computer.
I would suggest using Google to find any Win98 manuals that may be out there.

it's depend on what brand and model of the modem you are using.. from there we can look for your driver.

It looks like your hardisk or memory problem.. probably there is bad sector.. try to do 'Check Disk' (usually it called 'scandisk') first.

Microsoft... | Answered on Oct 12, 2011

You need a bootable disk that have DOS o/s inside it. boot from the disk and type these commands:
FDISK to create partition
FORMAT to format a drive (for example: 'A:>FORMAT C:')
(Usually the windows 98 setup CD already provide this)

otherwise, you may prefer to try 'smart fdisk' or other softwares that allow you to manage your disk with better GUI (Graphivcal User Interface). try to look for it.

This is because the windows startup files are damaged / deleted. Please reboot your computer by inserting the windows 98 bootable disk into CD/DVD drive and selecting the option as "R" repair.

In short you will be fixing the master boot record (MBR) for the operating system.

It is sad the device manufacturers and even Microsoft don't offer any support for Windows98 users. Windows 98 is much stable and relatively safer against virus attacks than the newer Windows versions.
I guess you can download the driver from
If it cannot be downloaded now, try exactly in 5 hours.
Good luck!
