Whenever I reboot, the process comes to a halt until I click OK on the following message:

"The following system files have been replaced with older versions by a program you recently ran. These files are currently in use and cannot be automatically repaired. Windows may not run correctly until you exit and restart Windows so that these files can be automatically repaired."


However, restarting will not sort out the problem. It also appears briefly when shutting down (but I don't have to click OK in this case). Finally, it can also appear at times after installing a new program.

I run Windows 98.

Can anyone help?
Thank you.

you've installed something that has replaced a system file without updating the registry. The registry therefore refers to a file that's a different version to the one actually installed.
