Got this on my old system computer running '98. Have seen lots of info on forums showing code to insert etc etc. Not good at this anyway, but still getting the samev message and no access via the 'start' button even in safe mode. Is there something reliable I can download onto a disk to use at startup .... want a quick fix even if it costs .............. THANKYOU ALL
