WHEN I BOOT UP MY SYSTEM, THE SCREEN WILL SHOW WINDOWS 95 THEN REVERT TO THE C:\PROMPT AFTER SHOWING THE MESSAGE (AFTER DISPLAYING TYPE COMMAND INTERPRETER
E.G. C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND) WHEN THIS IS TYPED
THE SCREEN GOES BACK TO THE C:\ PROMPT. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Someone changed the setting of BOOTGUI in your MSDOS.SYS file.

Unlock the file with:

ATTRIB C:\MSDOS.SYS -S -R -H

Edit the file and make sure that BOOTGUI=1

Save the file and relock with

ATTRIB C:\MSDOS.SYS +S +R +H

Reboot and windows should start

If it is already =1 or still won't fire

check to see if WIN.COM is in the C:\WINDOWS directory.

If it's missing you're going to have to reinstall.
