When I try to start windows in the normal mode(it will start in safe mode) I get the message that 'the system can not find the file 'Win.com'. So windows will not continue to start. If I type in the location of the file, windows will start. I have to do this each time I start up. Is there some way I can install this location permently in my start up? thanks
Hi Win.com is in my windows file where it should be. I opened msdos.sys file in notepad as you said. All the lines in notepad were exactly as you had written. I did not see anything to change. I am still getting the same message when I try to start. Any more help will be appreciated. thanks

START | FIND Type in win.com then hit find now, if it isn't in this directory move it there. If it is there then try this:
In explorer go to c:\ root directory and right click on msdos.sys file then go to properties, now uncheck all the boxes at the bottom, then close.
Now go START | PROGRAMS | ACCESSORIES | NOTEPAD
Then FILE | OPEN and find the msdos.sys file and open it up.
The very first couple of lines should look like this:
