re: stuck on command interpreter

Tell more. You boot and what happens? You type win and what happens? How come? What was the last thing that you did on this computer when it still worked? Can you boot into Safe Mode?

command interpreter

Details please.

You boot and "nothing" happens? The machine keeps turned off? I don't suppose so. 'Something' happens so at least you can type 'win', isn't it?

If you type win "it asks me to type (e.g. ...)". Never seen a message like 'Please type c:\windows\command.com'. So, again, what happens exactly?

Deleting stuff from a removable device only shouldn't lead to an inoperational system. So maybe you did something more (without knowing, or without telling us).

As you tell it now, the best would be to run Windows 98 setup (via a boot diskette, from the Windows 98 CD) and see if that will repair your system. But chances are it won't help. Then probably you need to do a clean install (after deleting Windows and Program Files folder from DOS).

Hope this helps.

Do you have a BOOTABLE floppy...

for your Win 98 system?

If so boot with it and type SYS C: at the A:\> prompt then press the enter key. Now reboot without the floppy and you should be back in business UNLESS your partition table got trashed or you have picked up a boot sector virus.
