I am currently using windows98 second edition software but seem to have some trouble with cut and paste and general right clicking on the mouse to move files around.The error message i recieve is "error in shell32.dll at 0167:7fcc5668". Also my games don't seem to install or load properly sometimes are these problems related.

The below two shell errors look like they could pertain to you. However there are lots of similar shell errors as well. You could try sfc, the system files checker that will repair any system files.

1) Place your windows CD in the CD-Rom drive.

2)Click start then run then type sfc (for system file checker), select the option to extract one file and type shell32.dll in the box and click "start".

3) In the "from" box, type in "D:\win98", where D is the letter of your CD drive.

4) In the "to" box, type in the location that the file is going to, "C:\Windows\system".

If it offers to copy the file to help something or other (cant remember) then select yes.
