Hi!

You should search in the registry with regedit for all entries of qemm and delete thoose.

You also need to edit c:\autoexec.bat and c:\config.sys, from theese files remove the lines loading qemms memory manager.

Best would be to copy them over with the old config.sys and autoexec.bat.

Quarterdeck QEMM is a DOS based program and won't have any entries in the registry.

Look in the CONFIG.SYS, usually the 2nd line, that reads something like:

DEVICE=C:\QUARTERDECK\QEMM.EXE

and remove that line

If you're not running any DOS programs, delete the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat completely! But then, even if you do, let Windows 95 manage memory. Some DOS programs needs loads in high memory, in that case just leave the line "DEVICE=HIMEM.SYS" in your config.sys and make sure that its in the root directory of C:. Some antivirus programs runs before Windows, in that case, just leave it in Autoexec.bat and delete the rest of the line.

Enjoy!
