Problem booting - need to edit boot record?
Posted on 2004-10-07
I have a friend who uses Win 98. He downloaded Norton Security 2005 and his computer would not work. We tried everything to get rid of it. Booting to safe mode would not let us uninstall. We disabled it from startup win Msconfig.exe. We tried booting with confirmation and tried to stop it from starting that way. Nothing would get rid of this. Finally out of desperation and 3 hours later, we just decided to delete it from the registry. Which worked.
Now when he boots up he gets the following messages:
win registry of system.ini files refers to this device file but device no longer exists
We can click enter and the machine will boot into windows, but I want to stop these messages from appearing.
I imagine I have to edit the System.ini file? But I am not sure, and don't want to break anything, now that it is working perfectly, except for this one problem.
Thanks in advance for your help.
