Save DellDomains.inf to C:\DellDomains.inf

Click Start > Run > copy& paste rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 C:\DellDomains.inf

That should do it.

The error you get supposedly means you are trying to use a XP file on the Windows 98 computer. Does that make any sense?

Post a new HijackThis log when you are done.

I cannot even get on my computer now. :tazz:

It says "Invaild System Disk". I don't even know what that is or even if I have it.

Then it's time to get out the XP CD (or floppies) and do a repair install

I'm afraid you already have, but this is your only change to get them back.

Unfortunately I have no idea what triggered this.

I got to "D:\win98>" & typed in "C:\win98\" but it brought up just "C:\>" instead of "C:\WIN98>". I'm not sure what to do now since it didn't come up the way it said in the instructions.

I don't understand :tazz:

File creation error - Directory could be full because of the DOS limitation of files in one directory the file could also already exist or the file was not copied correctly


You are not trying to create a file. You are trying to change directory.

Can you try this command:
dir and look through the list if there is a line

[date][time] <DIR> win98

Let me know,

When I did that this is what came up:

Volume in C drive has no label.
Volume serial number is

Directory of C:\

Win98 <DIR> 05-31-05 5:19a
0 File(s) 0 Bytes
1 Dir(s) 12,832.32 MB Free

so Win98 exists.

Can you reread the instructions and look at the illustrations.
I can't help but think you must be missing something. :tazz:
