I recently ran the System File Checker program because Explorer constantly crashes on my PC and it is getting very annoying. Anyway, when i ran the program it said that my setupx.dll file was maybe corrupted. It said i can restore it from my Windows 98 2nd Edition disk which i had in my D: drive. I am unsure whether to restore the file incase i lose everything on my PC. Does anyone know if i will lose anything or is it safe to do?
I dont get any error messages, Explorer just freezes, then it takes a few mins for the box to appear saying that it isn't responding. I then lose most icons in my taskbar. I really want to sort this as it is doing my head in. It happens every day.
It usually happens when im on the Internet. I will go and open another window and it will freeze. I have Norton System Works 2003 installed and i always run live update when needed. I also have Adaware and Spybot installed aswell and run them regularly. When i ran SFC, i just closed it when it appeared at the setupx.dll file, not sure if there are any more corrupted files. I'm not wanting to reinstall Windows 98 2nd Edition again. I had to get my PC sent away last year to get fixed.
