Forget my previous, it may detect errors but you will have to pay to correct them.

Hi, Try and re-instal the missing file by inserting your Windows CD and doing an over the top installation. this way you dont lose any data. Cheers, Bill
PS. Now you know not to open attachments unless you are totally sure where they are coming from, even then I would scan them first.

Hi, Just put your 98SE disc in your CD/ROM and click 'Instal'. Dont remove anything, missing files will be replaced. Cheers, Bill
