Seems like something went wrong. Time go to back in time.
Boot into MS-DOS (via the f8 boot menu) and then type scanreg /restore (followed by enter). You will get the choice of 5 dates to go back to. Choose the day that you did the last good boot (the backup is made automatically at the first boot of the day).
First, however, try if a simple reboot will solve the problem. It's not likely, but you never know.
Hope this helps.
I was downloading a kids cd onto my IBM and was asked to restart the computer, so I did and then when it came back on I had nothing on the screen just the arrow, there were no icons nothing just a black screen. I am still able to move the arrow around but that is it what can I do to fix this. Please help
