*EDITTED - SEE BELOW FOR RESULTS OF 98bootSE FLOPPY*
I'm sure I could find a restore floppy or cd and I'm pretty sure I have a win98 cd aswell.
I'll answer your next questions in a list format, not trying to be unemotional its just easier for you to read.
1. Found plenty of cab folders - 139 of them
2. Found the windows folder Options and an application data folder for Options but no "Option" all of the folders have an 's' in them.
3. Found litte of evidence for "Restore" all there were were a few media files I'd never seen before in the windows folder.
The Computer does have a graphics card - a Creative GeForce 2 MX, whatever that is which was installed later although it never gave me any problems and wasn't really used.
Thanks again for your help!! Not sure if we'll manage this - only 2 days until i move out and leave this computer here for my relatives hope we can manage something but even if we cant its been great getting help from you!
Thanks once again,
