for some reason or other my computer restores a good registry. But when it restores and reboots the process reapeats over and over again resulting in me not being able to use windows 98se at all.

you might want to try swapping out the memory :)

I am a bit miffed. this is what it says in my first comment "This problem can occur if there is defective memory in your computer" So my comment should have been the one that was accepted. And why the C grade?

Im willing to share points... :)

But to me long posts like that are like dropping a nuke to kill an ant.

Commented:
>>>MS's insistance that the system will not boot without one

That doesn't matter here a EE. Long or short post the questioner and the expert alike need to read the posts. If if this case if they had they wouldn't even had to look at your post that repeated what is in my comment.

If it were me I would have probably tried the short simple answers first and then tried the more longer involved solutions.

Maybe they troubleshoot the same way.

Again, willing to split the points if author so chooses.

Still doesn't matter here at EE the first one to post the solution gets the points. I am still curious why hudsonrulez graded it a C?

If that is the case then I have seen that rule broken a hundred times. Just because an answer puts them on the right track the author may feel the extra details or steps another poster takes may be better suited to the points.

And usually experts with any integrity will post a points for Expertxxx to show their appreciation for their contribution in helping the questioner to be led into the right direction. EE has had this conversation a 1000 times and nothing has changed. That is the nature of this site and it is unlikely to change for a long time to come.

I will leave it up to the questioner to retract the accepted answer and accept accordingly. I do not feel it my responsibility to award points or any infringement on my integrity to not do so. I believe it is at the sole discretion of the questioner and moderators of these threads to do that job - not me.
