start program before explorer





niceboy
So i have this old ibm 560 laptop with windows98 and no floppy/cd.

it got infected with some spyware and now i cannot enter windows.
each time after booting, Explorer.exe has performed an error something and it closes. im then left with my wallpaper and mouse.

i tried safe mode, same thing

tried thousands of selective startup combinations but nothing. Either vfat error or the explorer.exe one.

Id like to at least be able to start ad-aware to scan that computer.
It needs to start before explorer.
googled some things up and it seems i need to modify some reg info for that.
but i cant login to windows to start regedit, and regedit is not available thruh DOS.

Any other way???
