I have a Compaq Presario 7360 with Windows 98. It had a virus (delete/bat) which I removed. I installed all the Microsoft updates, but the sound driver wouldn't work. I searched the internet and found a solution I tried (shoudn't have). I tried to registry /restore to an earlier version. Things got worse from there. Fortunately I backed up the hard drive (with Acronis true image home). The original hard drive had the system and a compaq restore drive. I restored the system so I could start again, but windows won't come up as and I don't have a restore disk. I can boot with a win98 boot disk in the A drive. I can navigate to the C and D drive. Can I create a recovery disk still? If so how. I'm unimpressed, to say the least, with the Compaq policy that makes it difficult to recover their systems. (they apparently use a code to prevent you using another company's product). Compaq/HP tells me they don't have a recovery disks for that model now (I thought license to market Microsoft required them to support recovery). Any ideas?
