Huh?? how do you install it in the first place?
I hope whoever install it before, using a cd rather than magic..
of course you can delete and format your hard disk and install windows 98.. using windows 98 CD.
Copy the files you want to save and put them on a disk.
After you have the files you want to save,
Insert the Windows 98 disk into the CD-Rom.
Restart the computer and you should get a message asking you want you want to do. If you have nothing saved on the computer, I would tell it to Format and recover.
It will automatically install Windows 98 back on your computer, just like it came from the factory.
Hope this helps.
I have copied the files I want and I did already try to
install windows 98, but it didn't fix itand I keep getting error messages. I had deleted rundell 32(on accident) and this is when my problems started. When my computer would start up I had so many programs starting up and this is why I deleted it not knowing I needed it. So, is there anyway to delete the windows 98 that I have on the computer and start with a clean slate? Then I would install the windows 98 CD that I have.
Do you have a floppy BOOTDISK with FORMAT on it ?
If not, go to bootdisk.com and download one of the bootdisk files which will help you create a bootable floppy disk with FORMAT.COM on it.
Then reboot the floppy disk and run FORMAT C: /u. It will format the entire C: partition. One that's done...then start your reinstall of whatever OS you want.
No, I don't have it in my recycle anymore I deleted it a
couple of months ago. I am unable to connect to the internet anymore, so I use a public library to track this discussion for help. Thanks to all for your help I will try to do this. I wish i had phone support.
I have a floppy disk, but I don't know what is on it or how
A few remarks.
1. Is rundll32.exe still in the recycle bin? Then get it back and your problems should be solved.
2. Why not copy ONLY rundll32.exe from the Windows 98 CD? Start>Run>SFC and ask it to search for missing files only. That's what SFC is for.
3. No need to format and lose your files. Boot into MS-DOS, type deltree "c:\program files" (+ enter) and deltree "c:\windows" and Windows (in fact all your programs) is totally gone. While all your docs and pics and mp3's safely stay in My Documents.
4. If you reinstall Windows be sure you've got all your driver diskettes and cd's (including the motherboard drivers!) and can reinstall all applicatons from their setup or CD. Don't forget to visit windowsupdate for some 40 security patches and latest IE.
