When I start my computer it automatically goes to a screen where there are four options. #1 normal, #2 logged (/bootlog.txt) #3 safemode #4 step by step confirmation. Below the options it says"warning windows has detected a registry/configuration error. use scanreg to correct" If I do nothing it starts in safe mode, but doesnt boot all the way up. It looks like safemode but there are no icons or task bar or start menu. I've tried the other options and nothing seems to work.

I'm using windows me if that helps.
I did encounter a virus, but norton picked it up. I forget which one it was, that was the last time I used it... and now this!!!

I'm not sure what other info you might need, but I'm sure youll ask :)

Thanks for the help!

Unfurtunately MS decided to remove the DOS command prompt option #5 for ME and a startpup disk is required.

Do you have access to a windows ME startup disk?

If so, place it in the floppy drive, start your system and select #4 mimimal boot.

At the A\> prompt type scanreg and follow the instructions.

Let scanreg try to fix the problem with the registry. and then try to boot up.
