Under normal circumstances, Windows is capable of detecting and recovering from registry errors automatically. If Windows is incapable of this, a previous copy of the registry can be restored manually. Windows makes and stores a backup of the registry when you start your computer successfully each day. By default, five previous copies or the registry are stored. To restore one of these previous copies:

  1. Start your computer, press and hold CTRL, and then choose Safe Mode Command Prompt Only from the Windows 98 Startup menu. If you are running Windows Me, start your computer with the startup disk.
  2. At the MS-DOS prompt, type cd\windows\command, and then press ENTER. Where windows is the name of the folder in which Windows is installed.

  3. At the C: prompt, type scanreg /restore, and then press ENTER.
  4. Select the previous registry you want to restore, and then press ENTER.NOTE: A properly working registry has the word "Started" next to the date.

  5. When you receive notification that you restored a properly working registry, press ENTER to restart your computer

If you are talking about a disk to restore your computer to the way it was when new, that is a different disk. You didn't provide enough info to answer that question.
Hope this information will help.

Dear, Go back to System Restore and input a date when you know your program was working. But really dear, the Lord has made things so much better for us. Windows 98 is like the movie, gone with the wind.
The reason new Operating systems are developed is because they work better. Windows 98 was rife with problems.
Pleae consider investing in a new operating system. I have WindosXP on my pc and Windows Vista on my laptop. Both are great.
Be blessed.

Restore to orignal OS system and drivers


Your only hopes, given that Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 98 a few years ago:

* contact Toshiba, and see if you can still order the disks

* look on places like www.eBay.com or www.CraigsList.org
and post a "wanted" ad.

Personally, I would *NOT* connect any computer running Windows 98 to the Internet -- it would get "hacked", probably quickly.

How to get more restore point fron corrupted windows 98 registry. my friends move all directory to d: drive. how to bring back to C :


Hey there

The first thing that you should aware of is you cannot move the system file that are currently being used by another program to any of the directory. If it is so then you wont be able to log on to ur computer. because it will give you a lot error of missing system files.

For restoring your system do the following:
1. Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories ->System Tools
and select System Restore
2. Go to next window, Choose the restore point that is available remembering ur system was exactly what you wanted for.
3. Select that restore point by reading the description.
4. Click next to restore.

Note: Your system will restart after choosing the restore point and clicking next. It takes some time to restore.
for creating the restore point, follow the same step specified above except the second one. you need to select create new restore point insted of choosing restore point to restore.
Type a restore name and click next to create.

Gimme ur acknowledge by rating me
thanx
