Microsoft Registry Checker keeps coming up, and cannot enter OS...

hi all,

Got a problem with a pc running Win98. Basically when you boot it up it goes in 'Microsoft Registry Checker' everytime( a new one on me!!), and indicates that bad system files are being repaired, and there is a 'Reboot' button there which I click in the hope all will be well. However it keeps returning to the same 'Microsoft Registry Checker' blue screen. What can I do to resolve this problem.

Incidentally this machine hardly ever goes onto the internet, and has McAffee VirusScan on it.

Thanks,

Sam

Thats interesting...since the problem suddenly started yesterday - so it could be a defective memory chip.

I assume that is what you think as well.

Thanks,

Sheharyaar,

Thanks for your help. I think you are right, and I am going to take the PC to my pc shop for a spring clean, and while they are at it so check/replace the memory.

Incidentally found an excellent utility on another query that you might be interested in - it is called Passmark BurnInPro - it includes memory testing. I might well run this on the PC before it goes - now that I know which direction to look.

Thanks again,

Sam

and btw for memory testing there is another utility we use mostly, called MemTest >> www.memtest86.com
