actually, I thought windows rebuilt those files... not sure, though... used to use that trick by renaming autoexec.bat to autoexec.123 and config.sys to config.123 then reboot, that or remove this from autoexec.bat if its there
Dos=single, call c:\window\command.com and c:\windows\win.com /wx
lol, someone just posted the EXACT same problem! hopefully he read my post before reinstalling 98SE over itself (as someone suggested... hmm??!) Just to let you know, for those reading this, I'd say a format or reinstallation shouldn't just be thrown around as the common fix as I've seen many just post a FFR often and if you do, I'd let the person know to wait a bit and see if anyone else has any ideas. This other person may have a FFR on his hand if he did as suggested and installed 98 on top of itself for just what LOOKS to be a simple DOS loop.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
