Go to Start > Run and type in SFC and click OK, you can then specify the file to restore (iphlpapi.dll) from your Windows CD. It should go in the C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder. If you don't have the Windows CD then you can download the file if you click here

I don't know whether this will work in Windows 98se as I have only tried it in XP, but type:

sfc /scannow

into the command prompt from start/programs/accessories/

You may need your windows 98se installation disk.
