Hi,
I recently got a small program to splice split files back together. As it was a dos program when i clicked it in windows 98 it said "would you like to edit settings so it works in dos only" or something along those lines.
anyway the problem lies in that it then rebooted and produced the message
"press any key" appeared. however when you press a key it resets the computer and reloads until it get to the "press any key" then continues looping round. so i booted in safe mode and deleted the origonal file but this didn't help.
any ideas guy
Cheers
Rob
PS could you please and/or email me any response because can only check hotmail through my firewall at college.

Use the [F8] key to boot to Command Prompt Only
Type:
scanreg_/restore using a space in place of the underscore used here.
Choose a registry backup created before the problem occurred. After the message that the registry has been restoredd you can reboot and should be up and running.
