Windows 98 is no longer supported by Microsoft. You might be able to find someone selling a set on E-bay.

How do i reformat my pc?



Hi,

This is a pretty drastic process and takes several hours. If you have system slow downs and ongoing bugs you may be able to repair with software tools (see here), however that said, on with the show.

The procedure will decimate the data on your C: drive, so it's crucial that you back up all the data you don't want to lose.

Don't forget items like e-mail data and address books (see: How to backup e-mail.). Back up all your documents including your "My Documents" folder and all the data you've stored on your Windows Desktop which you'll find in c:\Windows\Desktop or c:\Windows\Profiles\<yourname>\desktop, where <yourname> is your Windows log-on.

Don't worry about backing up programs that you can reinstall later, unless you want a complete backup of your C: drive in the event of a problem.

Now, create a boot disk. Creating a Windows 98 boot disk is easy. If Windows 98 came factory-installed with your machine then one may have been supplied with your documentation. If not, you can create one through the Control Panel. In Windows, go to Add/Remove Programs and click the "StartUp Disk" tab and click the "Create Disk" button. It will create a boot disk on a blank floppy for you with CD-ROM support.

This is important, as you'll need access to your CD-ROM drive to do a new Windows98 install.

Once the boot disk is created, test it to see if you can access your CD-ROM drive. To do this reboot the machine with the floppy disk in the floppy drive and when the machine restarts choose "Start with CD-ROM support".

At the prompt type d: and hit the Enter key. If the machine responds with D:\> you are in business.

Next type "format c:" without the quotes (and hit ENTER).

The C: drive (main hard drive) will then be wiped clean.

Once the reformat is finished put your Windows CD-ROM disk in the CD-ROM drive, and type "D:\setup" at the prompt.

Once Windows is finished installing, reinstall your backup software and restore your data to the hard drive.

Good luck!
And Thanks.

Reformat


if you know your harddrives' manufacturer, go to their site and download their disk managment software, which is usually a self-extracting .exe file which will create a floppy disk. Create the floppy, and start your machine with the floppy in your a: drive, and use the tools displayed to format the drive.
Another option is to go to bootdisks.com and grab a windows '98 bootdisk with cdrom drivers, start your machine and when you get a Dos prompt type a: fdisk and follow the prompts.

Missing apcmain exe.


If you have the install disk, try and boot from the disk and reinstall. To change boot order, press the key to enter bios. (different on different pc's) Common ones are f8, and delete. If you have valuable data on the Computer you dont want to lose, then use a recovery disk. (BartPe is a good one. Just google it.)

Windows 98 SE


if you need an operating system and would not mind using linux (an alternative to windows) look on the www.puppylinux.com site and see if you would like to try it. the download is about 80meg and it runs very fast on all the computers i have used it with. or try looking on softpedia for a free download of the outdated windows xp install disks. or you can buy some disks from ebay. but i reccomend trying puppy linux, it is free and you have nothing to lose.(the disk is a live boot disk, so it should just run off the cd)

After i have reinstalled windows, i have a problem


you should have formatted the drive first before you installed windows. But then you need all of the software drivers. XP is good, but not that good with drivers.
The files you are looking for will not be in add and remove.
