The problem is with my mother in laws computer she gave up trying to fix it and could not tell me how the problem started.
When I start the computer it by passes the start page and goes to a black screen with the following written:
Microsoft ® Windows 98
©Copyright Microsoft Corp 1981-1998.
She told me that she had worked with DELL via phone and she thought they had removed everything from the hard drive. So I tryed to boot up Windows 98 from disc and tried the recovery disk in and out of safe mode and at some point the screen said that there is an operating system installed. So they must not have uninstalled Windows 98.
Now I am wondering if there is some type of boot up virus? If not, a proceedure to get into windows when I start up.
