Was wondering if there is a system restore function on Windows 98 like there is on XP? I have some kind of virus and am looking to just restart from a previous date. Thanks for your help.

Hi j1mdandy

98 uses scanreg for that function. If you were to boot as if you were trying to get to Safe Mode and instead pick Command Prompt Only you will come to C:\>. At that point type in:

scanreg /restore

This will present you with a list of your registry backups, listed by date. Its best not to pick the oldest one as if you do all the others are deleted, leaving you less options.
