Run the System File checker. To do this go to Start/Run and type in SFC accept the default settings and click Start. Have your O/S disc handy as you may need it.

Run a system file check. Put your OS Cd in your CD Drive and exit ( leave it in the drive ) Go to Start/run/ type sfc /scannow then hit OK. I am on XP but I think it's the same for 98

I would suggest borrowing the disc from somewhere.

Hi, I run Win 98SE and cannot find your missing file in my system therefore I suggest that it is a file needed for a program you have installed and which starts up on boot-up.
Go to Start/ Run/ type Msconfig/ Startup and then disable programs (not Explorer or Systray) until you can boot up normally. This should let you know which program needs the missing file and you can then remove the program and then re-install it.
I hope this helps.
