Toshiba 205cds with 16MB memory, win95 version 950 complained about registry problems. Eventually directories chuck full of !!! and garbage. Decided to reformat.
Did so, fresh windows install from CD. Still complains of registration problems. Thought it might be bad spots on HD. Scandisk thorough again. Passed, defraged to change locations of items. Loaded a couple apps, now get fatal exception OE. Beside registration complaint, PC was getting flaky before formating (control panel locked up system on closing etc.)
Now need to determine what is at root of problem, HD, memory, other hardware???
