Remody For Missing System Files

by TheChas In reply to Is it possible to delete ...

It is possible to delete system files that will at least make it impossible to open a DOS Window, or run DOS programs.

The first thing to try, is System File Checker.

Place your W98 CD in the drive and close the Autorun Window that opens up.

If memory serves me right, go to Start, Run and type in SFC.

Follow the prompts to replace missing or corrupt system files.

If that does not work, Windows 98 responds fairly well to being reinstalled over itself. When prompted by the installer as to where to install Windows, make sure that you choose your existing Windows folder. Usually C:\Windows

Sometimes, you do have to restore user settings and accounts after reinstalling W98.
