I tried this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306599 , but I dont know what my unknown file name is, if there even is one at all.
I tried restoring the system to an earlier date, only to recieve the same startup error message.
I tried copying Explorer.exe from a Windows98 computer onto my WindowsME computer, but it does nothing.
I tried this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299296 , but after I type the confirmation "y" (yes), it says "ERROR: Cannot open file: e:\win9x\(null)".
Ive also tried various other things, but none of them work. All I am looking for is a way to get my computer back up and running, but still be able to keep all my files. I heard somewhere that I can somehow "overlap" (I forget the exact term) Windows ME so that I can keep my files, but it still reinstalls Windows?? Someone please help me out, Ive put tons of effort into this already, and I just need to resolve this so I can get back to how things used to be.
