This will rebuild rather than restore the registry and also replace missing or corrupt system files

Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 right after the beep until you get options, select command prompt only, type scanreg.exe /fix then press enter, it will run through a few screens then say registry repaired. Press enter then press ctrl + alt + delete keys together to reboot.

When it has loaded, click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools then run system file checker and replace any files it asks for from the 98SE CD.


If it still won't load between rebuilding the registry and before replacing the system files, see if you can choose safe mode with networking from the F8 options

If the file isn't too large you can always make a boot floppy on another machne, or download one from the web, put the file on the floppy and copy it over. At the command prompt just type in

copy A:\urlmon.dll C:\windows\system\

and hit Enter. You can also extract the file from your CD or cabinet files if they are in the machine.
