    Hmm, it's been a while.
    [HIDE]
    B)

    C:\WINDOWS\CONFIG.SYS[/HIDE]

    EDIT: Upon reflection, the question isn't clear if the HIMEM file is corrupt or there is a problem executing/loading it.

    In the first case I think then [HIDE]C[/HIDE]

    and in the second I'll stick with [HIDE]B[/HIDE]

    [HIDE]Hmmm, not sure the correct answer is in there Boyce :rolleyes:

    the file config.sys is in the root of the system drive C:\config.sys and is editable with any text editor like notepad or the DOS *edit* command.

    Both autoexec.bat and config.sys are parsed during the boot up sequence. [/HIDE]

    Tricky question...

    If it is with the file itself then it's: [HIDE]A. - C:\windows\system dir. as that's where the file is located.[/HIDE]

    However if it's a problem loading the file then the answer would be: [HIDE]B. - if B had said C:\config.sys instead of C:\windows\config.sys[/HIDE]

    At least I hope I got it right, after all who still uses 9x? :)

    [HIDE]Himem.sys issues can be resolved by editing the config.sys file as stated in Tripwires link where it states this for Windows 98...

    So to correct the error you would edit the config.sys but as I said before, the config.sys file is not in the Windows directory, it is in the root C:\config.sys

    If the error was himem.sys is missing or currupt then that would be a different question :eek: [/HIDE]
