Windows has detected a registry/configuration error

I haven't used my Protege 3110CT in many years.  When I start to boot up I get the message:

Warning: Windows has detected a registry/configuration error. Use SCANREG to correct this error.

 

However, I cannot get into DOS to do a SCANREG nor do I know any other method.

 

I do not have any of the startup disks.

 

My machine has Windows ME on it.

 

I do have an external floppy drive and CD drive.

 

Any assistance is appreciated.

You can download a bootable DOS floppy here.

If you can locate a download of Scanreg.exe, then boot to DOS and run scanreg /restore to
go back to a previous known working copy of your Windows Me registry.

 

Maybe this one works (I don't know).
