My daughter inadvertlently left a disc in her computer. When she turned it on(windows 98) she received non-system disc error, which then told her to remove disc and press any key. This was done. Now the computer stays in Dos and will not open Windows 98. I have tried starting in safe mode etc. but no matter what I do the computer asks for the name of the computer intrepreter.

I don't see how leaving a disk in the cd-rom can corrupt the command interpreter, but that appears to be the problem. The easiest way I know is to bootup on the win98 cd-rom and reinstall win98. Due to version conflicts with command interpreter this will be the way to go. Just hope you have a win98 cd. You shouldn't lose any programs or files that you have on the computer.
If you have a system restore disk you may have to restore the computer back to factory condition. In turn losing all programs and files you installed.
