System Information on Windows 98 SE

  williamj 13:19 11 Jan 2004

Since installing a new motherboard (Soltex SL-75KAV) I no longer can get System Information on Hardware Resources or Components.
The error box titled Msinfo 32 is shown with This program has performed an illegal operation.
Any advice please on getting "System information"

Try inserting your Win98 CD and then go to



and type:


which will repair the MSInfo program if it is damaged.

To Diodorus Siculus. Thanks for your suggestion, but unfortunately no joy.
The repair of the file you suggest is for the System Information in total.
When I click on hardware or components I still get the error message as quoted above.
