CAN'T LOAD REGISTRY?

I've been using Windows '95 for the last year with no major
problems until now.  When I start it, I get the following message:
"There is not enough memory to load the registry, or the
registry is corrupted.  Some devicesmay not function
properly."  I tried restoring the registry, nothing happened.
I tried reloading Windows '95; again, I still get the message.
Can some enlightened individual help me?

Ah, that message is an old friend. It means that you may have some items in your autoexec or config files (or even the win.ini, I know W95 professes not to care about the win.ini, but it's a lie), that shouldn't be there. It could be something that refers to an old 16 bit program not necessary anymore. I think on my system it was still looking for an old soundcard that I no longer possessed. If in the course of checking out the offending remark in autoexec & config, just type rem before the statement, or put a ";" in the win.ini files, save and reboot.

You may want to look at your boot.txt file. It's a file of what you system does while booting up, the error may be glaring in there.
