    I am trying to restore win 98 from the oem istallion cd and I get a message that a cab file is corrupted.There is an old version of McAfee
    virus scan program in the system but I can’t find away do disable it or uninstall it.It’s not listed in the control panel’s install/remove section.

      Sounds more like a hardware problem.

      You either have:

      A bad Windows 98 CD,

      A bad CD-ROM drive,

      Bad RAM.

      I’ll go along with Chas. Bad CD or bad CD ROM drive.

      You may get lucky by copying the files on the CD to the hard disk and installing from there. That has sometimes worked for me, but I emphasise “sometimes”.
