what OS the file will be on the rescue disc or get it of the computer you are on now, out it on a flopy disc. if it's win98 start comp with a rescue disc or if you can get to the Dos prompt put the disc in and type A: press enter it should then be at A:\>type copy A:\*.com C:\windows so that it looks like this.

A:\>copy A:\*.com C:\windows

and then press enter key
