    Default I Need Help With My Computer (Screw Up)

    I ticked a box in tweak UI I think it was something about splash screen (Im not sure though) and I think there was something about user in it but not entirely sure. Now when I turn on the computer it comes up in dos command prompt mode how can I get back into Windows and reverse what I have done. Im running Win 98 SE.
    Thank You To Anyone that can help!

    Hi Chris

    Try typing win at the dos prompt and see what happens.

    All I can say is, you shouldnt use programs, if u have no idea how to use them. Or dont read the help files that they come with. So u know what the different options mean.

    C'mon Spacemannz, we've all gotta learn sometime right?!

    Doing what Billy T's suggested should get Doze back up in no time, so its no major... Better this than something that requires a format ;-)

    You may have to tell him how to get back to C:\ first...

    Nothing unless you hit the enter key to execute the command

    Way back in MSDOS 3.3 I renamed the format command so that your friendly person who knows everything can't just type "format C:" and expect it to work.

    Different of course if that person arrives with a bootable floppy with the format.com on it.

    WinXP is more secure than MSDOS happily.

    How secure is linux if I have unrestricted access to your computer in a physical sense?

    Most people I have found with a problem is that they have allowed physical access to the computer.

    You'll get nothing done in Linux without the right user root password which is alot more secure than Window's one, I guess someone could set their Linux box to boot straight to root but it's not likely and certainly not encouraged even to logon as root hence you get prompted for a password as soon as you start doing anything vaguely like admin stuff. But as your may be aware I'm just a noob in Linux so my explanation could be wide of the mark.
