try hitting f8 when it says starting windows 98, and then choose command prompt only from the menu. type in

cd windows
cd command

you should now have a prompt that looks liek this:

c:\windows\command>
type in scanreg /restore

when it asks you which backup of the registry to use, pick the second newest. if this doesn't work, repeat and use the 3rd newest.

To resolve this issue, run the Registry Checker tool using the /fix and /opt command-line switches. To do so, follow these steps:
1-Restart your computer, press and hold down the CTRL key until the Windows 98 Startup menu appears, and then choose Command prompt only.
2-At the command prompt, type scanreg /fix, and then press ENTER.
NOTE: The /fix command-line switch causes the Registry Checker tool to repair any damaged portions of the registry.
3-After the Registry Checker tool finishesrepairing the registry, press ENTER.
4-At the command prompt, type scanreg /opt, and then press ENTER.
NOTE: The /opt command-line switch causes the Registry Checker tool to optimize the registry by removing unused space.
5-Restart your computer.
Hope this helps

This message can be displayed if you have tried to restore a registry backup file, or the Registry Checker tool is not resetting the "damage" flag in the current registry files. To try to fix the problem, you can run the Registry Checker tool as follows.

Restart Windows. While Windows is restarting, hold down the [Ctrl] key to display the Microsoft Windows 98 Start Up menu. Select the Command Prompt only option.

When the command prompt appears type

scanreg /fix

and press [Enter]. When scanreg has completed, press [Enter] and then type

scanreg /opt

and press [Enter]. The /opt switch removes unused space from the registry files to optimize them.

When this has completed, restart your computer.

If you still receive theabove error message, you will have to try to restore a different registry backup using the /restore switch with scanreg.

NOTE: As always, we'll remind you that registry editing can be risky, so be sure you have a verified backup before making anychanges.

This was taken from one of the techrepublic Windows 95/98 letters, and I think it should be safe following their steps that they tell you.

Hope this helps!

If the above cannot solve your problems; try this:
(Before you use the following; backup your registry: start-->run-->regedit; then backup the WHOLE registry.)

1) "start" --> "run" --> sfc.exe
(make your original disk be ready.)
