Can anyone help?
I don't know if anyone can help but I have a problem. I have windows 98 and I was using this program and it seems to have gotten my computer stuck in a catch 22. I was using -- secrecy file & folder hider 2.1 -- I was putting some files under a lock and I accidentally clicked on the C: directory insted of the file beneath it. Now the hole directory is hidden. My computer will only startup in ms-dos. I got the computer from a friend and when I did I created a "startup disk" from the control panal. That is the only disk for my computer or any programs on it that I have. when I turn on my computer all it says is,
Warning windows has detected a registry/configuraration error, choose command prompt only & run scanreg.
And when I try to do thay it tells me,
Cannot find win.com unable to continue loading windows
So if I try to scanreg/restore or anything else it says,
volume in drive c has no label
volume serial number is xxxx-xxxx
directory of c:\windows
file not found
So basically it's a catch 22. the directory is hidden or locked and I can't get to the program to unlock it. Is there anyway to get to the program or fix this from Dos.
