Corrupted files in Windows 98 SE

By ojmj ·
I had an experience with a computer virus recently and it looks like some files were corrupted within Windows 98SE. Running custom-built PIII 400MHz 20Gb 256Meg RAM.

When using the internet (Navigator browser) a page will sometimes (intermittently) cause the browser to close. Have ordered new version disk from Netscape, and will install it when it comes in later this week.

The same shutdown occurs in Microsoft Internet Explorer, but only if Netscape is open and has the error.

I have seen the (setup?) command for verifying files within Win98SE on here before, but didn't print it out. Could someone list it again? Also, anything else I should remember to do?

Thanks!

O.J.

You can use SFC.exe (system file checker) from the run command line.

To check for missing or corrupted system files, click on Start, Run, type sfc and click ok. This will start the System File Checker. Have it check all files. Have you Win98 CD ready!
