As Dave said there is no system restore function built into Win 98.

If you got an OEM restore disk with the computer you can use that.
It will format the drive and restore the system to where it was when
new.

Or, you can format the drive then install windows from the Win98 CD.
That will give you a fresh Windows install.

In either case you will lose your data and will need to re-install
your programs. You can backup your data ahead of time though and
then copy it back after the install.

Any programs included with a restore CD will not need to be
re-installed.

I read the comments below and he is assuming that you probably never saved
your registry in "CONFIGSAFE". This is available in WIN98, it is a manual
feature as compared to XP etc. Have you ever backed up your "registry"
through this feature or any other software such as SYSTEM MECHANIC? If you
have never backed up your registry and most likely within the last 6months,
the other comment will unfortunatly be correct. Maybe your specific problem
can be manually fixed in the registry, but unless you know what you are
doing, I would strongly recommend not messing around in there, but what ever
you do, you should definitly back your registry up anyhow as you have
everything to gain any nothing to lose by doing this. I back mine up monthly
or anytime I make any significant changes and it has paid me dividends many
times over.

Beg pardon, but Windows 98 does include an automatic registry backup tool
unless you disable it.
