If windows still boots, try the following:

Click START
Click RUN
type COMMAND.COM

See if that gives you a DOS prompt. If it does, then type EXIT.

On the desktop, right-click and select NEW, then select SHORTCUT. Type in COMMAND.COM and it will setup a shortcut to the DOS prompt for you.

I hope that helps...

Thanks I'll try that.
Oh and by the way, no my PC does not want to boot. It says that it cannot find COOMAND.COM and then when I click the browse button to find it, still it says that same thing, even though there is a COMMAND.COM file in the directory that I chose. I don't know why is does that but the only thing is to reinstall my Windows

When I got my PC I didn't know much about it, so I don't remember how it happened, but one day I wanted to go into DOS but it showed me a message and it said: "Program now found" and there they are giving my a Browse button for me to find it. I've tried everything I can, but I still can get it to work. Everyone who I have asked about this, they told me that I have to reinstall my Windows. Do I have any other choices?
(I'm using Windows 95 Version 4.0 Build 1212a and my DOS is Version 7.10 if all this helps) Thank you
