My suggestion is to follow up with the rest of us and install XP.. XP OS is so much more stable than 98... Upgrade a little bit on the hardware-front, and get XP...

Windows start up


Its been a long long time, but i believe windows98 protection shutdowns were to prevent failures from destroying user data. They usually occured only with very bad driver problems or hardware problems. Starting is DOS you could try the System file checker.

sfc /scannow

Your floppy drive should actually be working fine in safe mode, its possible that your floppy drive is at fault or your motherboard even.

How to hide files using the Attrib command


Attrib is a DOS command that sets or displays various file attributes. One of those attributes is the Hidden attribute, which determines whether or not a file can be viewed in a directory under normal circumstances. With the Attrib command, you are able to hide or show any non-system file, as well as view any file's current attributes.

To use Attrib, you must be at the DOS command prompt. In Windows XP, Vista, and 7, you can open a command prompt window by either typing "cmd" into the Run bar or by browsing to the Command Prompt (Start menu > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt). In Vista or 7, you can also type "cmd" into the Search bar.

The syntax for using Attrib to hide a file is as follows:

attrib <path><filename> +h

If you are currently in the directory where the file is located, you can omit typing the path. And since DOS is not case sensitive, you can use either upper or lowercase letters, or both.

If you later want to make that same file visible again, just type:

attrib <path><filename> -h

To view the attributes of all of the files in the current directory (even hidden files), type "attrib" by itself. Keep in mind that hiding a file will make it harder to find, but it does not by any means make it impossible. If you have sensitive or confidential data that should not be viewed by other users, protect it using encryption, permissions, and a strong user account password.

Need a BOOT diskette


Hi,
I am not sure if this will work. But worth a try.

http://www.allbootdisks.com/downloads/Disks/Windows_98_Boot_Disk_Download49/Automatic%20Boot%20Disk/Windows98.exe

download the link and create a boot disk (floppy)

Insert a blank floppy and run the exe file to create it.
You need to create this some computer having floppy drive.

Insert this disk into your laptop and boot using this disk.

You should be able to boot in dos prompt.

now, you could browse through the harddisk contents by accessing C: or D: or etc ....

I assume you know basic DOS commands :)

lemme know if it works .

ABOUT MY 2GB PEN DRIVE WARRANTY


Here's what you should do. actually I prefer using DOS to do this. ok, so fire up the DOS and goto C:
this virus actually put two files on each partition that It will infect, autorun.inf and the .vbs file which contains the code of the virus. currently the attributes of these two files are hidden, read-only and system. so using attrib command, type:
attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf
attrib -h -r -s m*.vbs
del m*.vbs
del auto*.inf

also look for the windows folder and look for the other .vbs file of the virus and change its attribute.

not yet done.

activate your task manager(ctrl-alt-del) and look for wscript.exe, you should end this task.

take not you must do this in every partition or flashdisk that have been infected. Take note you should also check the registry since this virus append it's .vbs to the [Run] field of the registry and also it alters the Title of your Internet Explorer to Hacked by Godzilla.

after your done, you need to reboot your system.
