No System Properties or Add/Remove Hardware

I have just purchased a WinTV card from eBay which arrived this morning, upon fitting I had to remove a USB card to give me another slot, which had to be also removed in System Properties however when I had tried to access System Properties nothing happened. I tried several ways but still nothing happened, after this I thaught perhaps the Add/Remove Hardware applet may help, but again it never responded. All the other applets in control panel worked except these couple. I have recently been upto some system tweaking, but restored the registry to two days earlier, it also doesn't work on any other user profiles (even newly created ones).

I am running Win98

Can you help?

Reinstall 98 over the top of your original this will put back any missing files or run system file checker.
