in win 98se; which file tyes should be listed in the basic check?

I"ve just benn running mine and and previously added to the selection, but think I have overdone it;need to know which are the ones that ought to be checked as "essential basic", so I can adjust the program to be a bit more realistic:)

you should replace any found to be corrupt. then retry windows to see how it goes

Hi, I've never altered my basic selection so I think the standard group should be:-
*.386, *.com, *.dll, *.drv, *.exe, *.mpd, *.ocx, *.scr, *.sys, *.vxd.
Hope this helps.

I"ve added .acm,.cfg,.drv,.dx,.hlp,.hpi,.htm,.kbd,.mod,.msc,.nls,.swp,.vbx,.vwp

lord knows why and makes for a very long search:(((

I"ll try and chop the extra lot and see the improvements I hope:) unless some of the above are a good idea to scan?

As I said just the Corrupt files, other files will have been changed by adding programs. So they may not work if you start putting them all back

PS then check for deleted files if you still have a problem

I think SFC is being asked to check far too much and unnecessary stuff; so i need to prune the request list and see what happens then:)

will dock my list and repost if I have problems ; the list above looks favourable to me; thanks:)

my SFC has taken forever with all that I have asked it to go through:(
