Brisixty Sat, 21.06.03 | 00:17 I did this today and It worked! Hi, You must have a FULL Win-ME Setup disc for this to work......... 1. Left click - MY COMPUTER 2. Put Win-ME Full Setup disc in CD-ROM drive. 3. Press SHIFT Key to prevent Auto Boot. 4. RIGHT click - on your CD-ROM drive letter and SELECT - OPEN 5. Look through the files and LEFT click on - SETUP or SETUP.EXE 6. WIN-ME will now reinstall over it's self keeping all your files and original setup intact. This will not work if you let the disc AUTO BOOT.(I don't know why that is.) I had to do this today because of errors in OUTLOOK EXPRESS and WINDOWS EXPLORER. It worked ok. I accept no responsibility for this advice. I know it worked for me, but you must decide for your self wether to try it or not. The same works for WIN98 and 98SE by the way. If you try it ... Best of luck. Have a nice one and hope this helps you out. Regards,
The easiest thing to do is load the win98 disk into the cdrom. Now type sfc into the run box and enter. This will check all your windows 98 files and install any that are missing or altered. It will prompt you if there is any missing.
hi there. I have tried this. It will not let me. The message is coming up in german or something. Just to explain i am trying to recover from the Perite A virus. When i try to run windows update or install anything it tells me it cannot as the file is linked to the missing export kernel32.dll. I have tried replacing the file but to no avail :(
