Please boot the PC and keep tapping the F8 key right after the beep until you get the options screen, select command prompt only, type scanreg.exe /fix then press enter. You will see a number of screens during the repair of the registry. When this is complete, you will see a box with registry repaired, click OK, press enter then press the ctrl + alt + delete keys together to reboot the PC.

When the PC has loaded the desktop, press start, programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools then run system file checker and replace any files it needs from the 98SE CD.

Have tried your directions several times but do not get the screens you are talking about. I have a partitioned hard drive 98 on one and XP on the other.

When I get to the window where I choose 98 I can get to the options screen , can select command prompt but again it goes right to a green screen with the pcctlcom file error and no place to type scanreg.exe

Can help further and am appreciating your efforts so far.

See how far you can get with this, which will let you re-install and keep your data

Read your site directions and unless I am not understanding something it directs me to use the 98 disk and Expl. of 98? I can't get to any files on 98 so not sure how I can use the directions. Am I missing something here?
