    :oops: Help..I just killed one of my computers with EASY CLEANER & CRAP CLEANER. Deleted some "duplicate" files with EC then cleared recycle bin with CC - dumb I know!!!
    It is my practice PC with WINDOWS 98 SE & I don't have a CD to reinstall.
    Getting a message:
    "c:\windows\system\VMM32\ifsmgr.VXD has been deleted from the registry"
    Can this be fixed by a dumb cluck like me or is it a tech job?

    Give scanreg /restore a try:

    Using ScanReg
    Command-Line Switches for the Registry Checker Tool

    Hey dakota,

    I would give nick's suggestion a try....in regards to scanreg.

    Start the computer in MSDOS mode and at the command prompt type....scanreg /restore

    [​IMG] Do not continue with a selection if the files to choose from are a few weeks old.[​IMG]

    This will give you a list of 5 previously backed-up registrys that you can restore to. Choose a registry with a date that is previous to the time of the problem and restore it.

    No go guys..just cannot access that scan reg bit at all..also cannot understand any of that long winded blurb from another forum. Guess I need to take the damn thing to a technician. Surely this should be easy to fix? :(
