How to do system file check in Win98SE

  Nick052 19:10 04 Feb 05


What do you type at the Run prompt to do a system files check in Win98SE?

Seem to recall you can do this.

I think Ive deleted some of my Windows fonts by mistake and I wanna check they're all there.

but I don't think this checks fonts.

Yeh didnt seem to check fonts.

Anyone know of a program that checks for missing fonts?

Don't know of any programmes to check what's missing, but if it presents a real problem there's a couple of things you might try. If you restart in a DOS window and type scanreg/restore you are presented with the last five "good" boot ups(?), that may restore the fonts if one of them is prior to your "mistake" ;)) or, if you have the setup CD, just install over the top of the existing prog and all the fonts will be replaced.

Just put Win98se disc in and run setup it will reinstall fonts. Turn of AV before doing the above
