Warning: the system configuration manager failed to run. Some of your real-mode device drivers may not initialize properly.
So I went into Safe Mode Command Prompt.
CHKDSK has NOT checked this drive for errors. You must use SCANDISK to detect and fix errors on this drive.
After that it has some stuff on how much drive space is used, and another message saying to use scandisk.
Error in EXE file

Once at the C: prompt, type in "scanreg /restore" (no quotes)
Note that there must be a "space" between the word Scanreg and the foward slash for this to work.
Once the restore screen pops up, select one of the restore points. Hopefully, one of them will work and let you boot up.

You cannot run this from the dos prompt window. Nor can you run this while in Windows.
The Scanreg.exe app should be in C:\window\command
See if you have it.
Also check C:\windows\sysbckup and see if you have 5 cab files (they look like zip files) with the names rb001 thru rb005. These are scanreg restore cab files.

Do you have a Win98 Start disk?
If you do, boot with it. You may have to change your bios to boot from the floppy drive.
Once the computer boots up to the a:\ prompt, type in C:
Once at C:\, type in scanreg /restore (remember there is a space between scanreg and the foward slash).
Select a file from the list to restore to.
If you get a message that windows cannot use that file, then you're out of luck and need to find another way to fix your computer.
