Can't get into PC after program uninstall

After archiving Ulead photo express with McAfee Uninstaller I can no longer get into my PC. I get as far as just before the icons appear then a error box saying it'll close down. The box is titled 'explorer' and when I do ctrl, alt & delete systray isn't there either. I don't have any disks with the PC but I do have an image of the drive with a bootable CD (True Image). My os is 98SE and I will be eternally grateful for any help.

Can you get it to start in Safe Mode? Reboot and keep tapping the F8 key just before the Windows screen loads.

No Vog, tried that it gets to the same place as before then the close program box.

Have you a start up disk,if so use it at the a prompt type C:
then scanreg /restore
it should then give you 5 previous options for you to choose from

Rayuk,I get these:
1. Normal
2. Logged
3. Safe (tried this, didn't work)
4. Step by step confirmation
5. Command prompt only
6. Safe command prompt only

Which one to use, and what then?

Try No. 6, then SCANREG /RESTORE as Rayuk suggested.

Typed scanreg/restore but got a 'bad command name or file name'. After the A prompt it changes when you input C to C:\> so I've typed all different ways C:\>/scanreg/restore; C:\>scanreg/restore etc get the same thing.

Start up disk
A:C:
C:
C:scanreg /restore
Note the space after scanreg

Tried it again Rayuk, still no joy. Every time the A prompt is A:/> so how do I change it to A:

At the A prompt type in
C:
press enter,it should then change to
C: then type in scanreg /restore so it reads
C:\scanreg /retore
click here
may help
