I also tried to load in safe mode but was getting the same explorer message and does not allow me to continue anything. Once again it blocks me from attempting to do anything.
Can anyone help, i am going to get a new computer but there is a lot of stuff I want to transfer to the new computer from this infected one.
HELP is appreciated

Boot to your Win98 startup floppy (you may have to change your bios to boot to the floppy)
When you get to the a: prompt type c:
at c: type in scanreg /restore (note there is a space between the word scanreg and the forward slash)
Choose one of the restore dates. (try to pick the oldest date)
If you get a message that the restore was unsuccessful, try another date.
restart your computer.

it was hard enough going to safe mode as it kept going to some PheonixBio thing.
To get into Safe mode, you have to repeatedly hit the F8 key before the windows screen comes up.
To get into the bios, you have to repeatedly hit the delete key before the windows screen comes up. You will know you're in the bios screen if you see Pheonix Bios.
Can you get into Safe mode? Your post is not clear on this.
without sounding too retarded, how do i boot to floppy
Do you have a Win98 start disk? It's a floppy disk, probably name Win98 Start disk.
