This time a real catastrophy. Downloaded a registry checker, all 4mb, from Meta Products (who have not even answered call for help).
At ShutDown and at StartUp I'm presented with blue screen as follows:
Microsoft Registry Checker (MSN non longer supports)
Restore Desktop (check mark OK)
Restoring Devices Listed IN ASP (check mark OK)
RESTORING FILES/FOLDERS (no check mark OK)
After about ten minutes the horizontal progress bar stops at 86%. Then box appears found an error cannot repair. Try reducing number of files , otherwise REINSTALL (a course of action I will do anything to avoid!)
Point is I cannot get out of this screen. No cursor; no boxes of any kind. Must shutsoen, whereupon same thing restarts. At SAFE MODE I deleted anything about Registry with installation date 23AUG05. That is how I am now online. BUT THE SCREEN STILL APPEARS GOING IN OR OUT. Sometimes the error box doesn't appear and I'm in. Sometimes not, and I know not why.
You can see this is a real emergency in dire need of some expertise.
Failing resolution, and even if successfully resolved, please advise exact path at SafeMode that permits restoration (W98SE) to a given date -- in my case 22AUG05.
I dare not shutdown day or night fearing inability to get back. Please help!
