unfortunately...there is no "system restore" in 98 like there is in xp...unless you did a backup...certain things will not be restored..

there is however a registry restore

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.
