Removed NETWORK files: Invalid VXD?  Help!

I hope my subject title made some sense.  I just removed everything within Control Panel's Network (and was asked to reset).  I did this thinking that my laptop was loading up Win98 too slowly because it was making some kind of network timeout.  My laptop has no LAN connection and I was using the network files for getting dial up access.  Some of the items were: Client For MS Networks, Dial Up Adapter, InfraRed, TCP/IP.  

One rebooting back into Win98 I immediately got the dreaded blue screen with an error message about:
---
 Invalid VXD Dynamic Link call from tdimsys(01) + 000066F8 to device "0028", service 801C.  You Windows config is invalid.  Run the Windows Setup to correct.
---

I suspect the error occurred because some App I have launching makes use of Networking and because I removed those items from NETWORK it is confused.  

After my reinstall I suspect the error to persist.  Can you suggest any quick fixes for similar errors?  Im thinking i should go into Safe Mode, launch MSCONFIG.exe and try to fiddle around in there.  Any areas you'd suggest?

Just in case I can alos try placing those NETWORK files back.  Can you tell me what those Client For MS Networks, TCP/IP, Dial Up adapter files are, where they're located on the Win98 CD, and any possible file editing that must be done ALL through MSDOS so that I may be able to get back into Win98?


Thanks for any help.  Ill come back to add any extra info I have.

You might be able to use the command SCANREG/RESTORE to get back to before you changed the setup.

I have the very same trouble but the solution does't work for me because all my 5 registry backups are copies of the damage one.

How to proceed editing the registry manually?
How to edit the registry if the computer doesn't work?. Do a take the registry to another working computer?

thanks
