|I am on a microsoft windows 98 system and am having many problems with my computer. My 16 year old brother has over loaded my computer by downloading music files and I need to know how to restore my computer to original form, to how it was originally bought. It is a used computer and I have tried the following action:|
<center>click on local c:drive selete system.1st and rename it "system.dat" copy system.dat to c:\WINDOWS and finally shutdown and reboot.</center>
The computer didn't have a system.1st file, but it did have a system.sav. I renamed sav to dat and copied it to c:\WINDOWS. once I pasted it, an error box popped up saying that c:\WINDOWS already contains a system.dat file. I am at a lost. The computer has obivously been restored before, and I don't know how to do it again. Please help me, and thank you in advance to anyone that does. Also, this is my first time posting on here, so as I am not sure how to find my posts, could you please e-mail the information to me at Wltray@aol.com. Thank you again.
