Windows95 Setup question

I have run into a problem a couple of times where I no longer can enter Windows95 because, I am informed, a file that is referred to in the register cannot be found on the disk. Of course I cannot get into windows to edit the register so I am wondering if there is a register editor that operates from the DOS prompt?

There isn't a dos registry editor, but you can probably enter windows in safe mode.  If you hit <F8> as soon as you see the starting windows 95 text line, it will give you a menu where you can select safe mode.  Windows will take longer to load, but it will only load the most bare essentials of drivers.  If it still won't load, you will need to either figure out what file is missing, and replace it, or just re-load win95 over the current setup.  You will retain most of your settings as long as you don't delete the win95 dir.
