    When starting up his computer, my co-worker receives the following error.

    Windows has detected a registry/configuration error..

    Choose command prompt and run SCANREG

    file missing or corrupted

    C:\windows\himem.sys
    error in config.sys file on line 1

    C:\windows\dblbuff.sys
    C:\windows\ifshlp.sys
    C:\windows\dblbuff.sys

    C:\windows\EMM386.exe
    error in config.sys file on line 2

    cannot find WIN.COM

    also
    highmem area not available will use low mem instead.

    Please help me help him
    Yes it is an old computer on an old OS, but he's older than all of us combined.

    Thanks in advance for any help available.

    We do not have a copy of his OS readily available I believe it is windows 98

    Seems like you need a Win98 disc to re-copy the files from
