I have windows Millennium. It works fine. But when I like to replace system files with my backup system files, it says that I need to reboot my computer before it can restore. Well I do reboot but again same problem, asking again and again to boot. Why is that? How can I use my backup files? Why unable to use them?

Are you talking about ME restore feature or your own backup files??
If they are your own you may have to use your boot floppy.

Sometimes  Wininit.ini which is NOT needed in windows ME can cause such a problem.
To solve the problem:
1.Restart win Me in Safe Mode.

2.Click Start, point to Search, and then click For Files or Folders.

3.In the Named box, type wininit.ini.

4.In the Look in box, click Local hard drives, and then click Find Now.

5.Right-click the Wininit.ini file, click Rename, type wininit.xxx, and then click OK. Or simply delete it. You do not need that file in win ME.
