I'm currently having problems trying to start windows 98 on a computer (not this one) but it goes to the startup menu (The f8 screen) and I get the following warning:
Windows has detected a registry configuration eror.
Choose, command prompt only, and run SCANREG.
After selecting "command prompt only" I get the following message:
The following file is missing or corupted; C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
The following file is missing or corupted; C:\WINDOWS\DBLBUFF.SYS
The following file is missing or corupted; C:\WINDOWS\IFSHLP.SYS
Cannot find WIN.COM unable to continue loading windows
Can anyone help me get into windows? I want to back up the files on the PC and upgrade to XP (it's my mother's PC and she was waiting for me to come home to do it for her).
