Hi there,

Is there any way to undelete or recover back User Profiles in Win98. I got a pc that has 2 users and one of them got deleted. Now I wanted to access MS Office 2000 that's installed on the deleted user. I tried to open from the Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office and I got error messages. Please help me!!!

Win 98 does not have private folders for different user profiles, so unless you are looking for something that was saved in that specific users directory Office should still work.

Your profile directories in windows 98 is:
C:\WINDOWS\PROFILES\[username]

You can try restoring the contents of your recycling bin, but I don't know if that'll help or not. How did it get deleted?
