sounds like windows is hosed due to disk problem or virus. find windows 98 boot floppy make sure scandsk is on it. and download stinger from www.mcafee.com put it on the floppy or a cd.
configure your bios to boot from floppy. first run scandsk /f if many sector bad block errors get new hd and reinstall windows. if no errors or few, see what stinger fixes. you may have to visit support.microsoft.com and search mskb for instructions on reinstalling windows w/o losing your installed applications.

THere's a folder called C:\WINDOWS\SYSBCKUP - IT's A HIDDEN FOLDER

To restore a backup, you need to be in Windows98 DOS.

Go to the \Windows\Command directory

Run SCANREG /restore

From here you can select which one you want to restore

Copy .dll and .vxd to a C:\WINDOWS\system
and .sys to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers
