USB printer connection

Hi
When you install some 3rd party software or an earlier version of internet explorer over a nwer version it may damge or replaces old version of some windows files.
Since you have 4 GB and it is one partition it should not be FAt16. You need to create a Win98 startup disk that supports FAT32 which DOS does not support.
If you have Win98 or win98 SE you will have the Startup disk creation program (Fat32ebd.exe) on Windows 98,SE CD-ROM, but it is not included on the retail Win Me CD-ROM.
You need a startup disk which include driver that support your CD-ROM.(if you have any PC runing win9X then you can create a startup disk by:
Start->Settings->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs->Startup Disk tab->Create Disk.Boot your PC then go to your CD-ROM say then type:
cd\tools\mtsutil\fat32ebd\
Then run the program fat32ebd.exe (you need a blank virus free floppy disk)
Flow on screen instructions.
After you crated the FAt32 boot disk then reboot while it is on the A: drive.

Bootyour PC then go to your CD-ROM say then type:
cd\win98, and then press enter.
Type the following command and then press enter:
extract /a /y /e /l c:\windows\system base4.cab shdocvw.dll mshtml.dll comctl32.dll shlwapi.dll shell32.dll explorer.exe
Reboot your PC.
if you have problems with control panel or windows explorer then extract these files to Windows\System. Inetcpl.cpl,Ole2.dll,Ole32.dll,Oleaut32.dll
Olepro32.dll, Olethk32.dll, Setupwbv.dll , Softpub.dll, Urlmon.dll,
Wininet.dll, Wintrust.dll
Tip:
Even with this problem you can run windows by usingthe old shell program (same looks as win3.x)
After you boot do:
locate your system.ini then use any editor to edit it.locate the line
shell=Explorer.exe it is under the section [boot].
change it to shell=Progman.exe then reboot your PC.You will see win9x in flavor of 3.x then do as above.

note:
make sure explorer.exe is not in the root

Just a thought...If you are using a "usb to parallel centronics" adapter for your Canon printer, you may need to disable bi-directional support. This setting can be found under the Printer's Properties, then under Details, then under Spool Settings. This has been found to cause trouble in Windows 98.
