PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows98
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:"Error loading Explorer.exe. You must reinstall windows"
"A required .DLL file, MSVCRT.DLL, was not found."




I have uninstalled some software on my PC and in the process I inadvertantly deleted some shared '.dll' files. As a result I can no longer boot up my PC - when I try I get the error messages shown above.

Unfortunately I cannot get into DOS or the Windows OS and so don't know what to do now. I have tried F8 while the system attempts to boot - this does nothing. I have tried a Windows 98 boot disk in the floppy drive - this also does nothing.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks

Thanks,

Unfortunately the problem is that the PC does not even attempt to read the boot disk when I boot up. Also, pressing F8 while the PC boots up has no effect.

Perhaps, as a last resort, I could reformat the hard drive. Is there any way of doing this without a command line prompt (maybe this would involve removing the hard drive) ?

Any help would be appreciated.
