Lost file

  Jarigo 17:53 01 Dec 2007

I have a second PC with windows 98 os but I cannot get it to start up as it says the file c:\windows\system \comctl32dll is missing and to re-install windows. I am unable to do this as I do not have a windows98 disc.Is there any way round this.I have also tried in safe mode but still get the same result.Any help would be appreciated.

restart in dos and enter scanreg/restore (i think) and it generall puts up the last 5 times machine was ok, choose one and it should revertt to then.
