Download this Win98SE Startup Disk and save it to your desktop. Double-click on the downloaded file, then put a floppy in the drive when prompted for it by the bootdisk application.
Then boot the problem machine with the startup disk in the floppy drive. At the options screen, press Shift + F5 for command prompt.
At the A:\ prompt, type c: and press "Enter"
At the C:\ prompt, type windows\command\scanreg /restore (note the space after scanreg) and press "Enter".
You will be presented with a screen containing five "snapshots" of your system you can restore to. Use the arrow keys and choose one (go down two to be safe) and press "Enter"...type Y at the prompt and press "Enter".
Once this completes, remove the floppy disk and reboot.

Use the arrow keys to select the Boot section, use the arrow keys to select Boot Priority, and use the + or - keys to change the settings so the floppy is first boot device. Save the settings (usually F10, but there may be a menu option to save and exit). Sorry I can't be more specific...all BIOS versions are a little different.
With the Startup disk in the drive, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to restart the machine...it should boot to the floppy. At the options screen, press Shift + F5 for command prompt.
