Firstly if you boot to F8 boot options and choose option 5 i think for command prompt, then goto the followinf directory, C:\windows\command
Type in 'scandisk c:'
let scandisk check the files for damaged clusters etc then exit the program
then type in 'Scanreg/fix'
let scanreg fix the windows system registry.
Reboot the pc and then re-install windows over itself, (you may find that the computer manaufacturer may have put in a seperate partiton with some files on it, this si the recovery system for when your system goes tits up, problem being only they can use it becaise it is prodeced for compaq only... so you can do this...)
but you should have a copy of windows E there somewhere...
Re-install windows from dos mode and say yes to backup system files if asked.Don't use any other winME disk than the one you already have...
