Insert the repair disk in the A-drive and extract the win.ini file from disk if you have one created.This may apply to Milleniumas with WIN98
Go to Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools
Select File Checker,when the windows open go to the tools menu and then select the file checker, Insert the OS cd,and Follow the on screen instructions.
Also try locating the file in the find file or folders from the start menu,double click when found and the WIN.INI.EXE WILL REINSTALL
