                *Press F8 during bootup
                 *Select Ms-Dos
                *When you are in MS-DOS, make sure that you are in windows directory
                *Type scanreg /restore. Available dates will appear, choose one and reboot.

No, Windows 98 does NOT have the function to restore the last good configuration.

Restoring the registry to a previously successful boot may help, but why don't you explain the problems you are facing?

That may help us help you.

            Hi kamleshmsitry
                     Did scanreg /restore solve your issue?
