    I know this doesn't belong here but I need help with a problem with my pc.

    I think I am missing a file.

    Here are the problems.

    1. very slow boot
    2. does not shut down on it's own
    3. sometimes does not allow scrolling in small window boxes or popups.

    4. Kernal mode processer errors when shutting down.


    I already tried reinstalling windows 98 that didn't help. I also tried the reboot disc which wouldn't take.


    My comp is a intell p3 550 with win 98

    Does anyone know of a remedy or what files could be missing.

    I know there will be objections to this method but this is, IMOP the best way to go.

    As long as you have all your software on hand and can re-install it and you also have the key for your windows edition just start all over!

    That's what I did and I am very happy with my "new machine"

    From a dos prompt type in this command

    format c:

    when that is done type this command

    fdisk /mbr

    When that is done insert your windows disk and install it.

    That's it, you now have a "factory condition PC!"

    Heyder,

    I agree with Breeze. The best way to solve this is to reinstall EVERYTHING. Ok, I know it is a lot of work, but it is worth it.

    Another thing that you can do is run "sfc" from START\RUN. Just type "sfc" in the "run" dialog. When the program runs, just follow instructions on screen. "sfc" stands for System File Check, and when it runs it looks through all your system files looking for corrupted, missing, or other version system files. You have the option to recover files, or just update the registry for new versions of files.

    Hope this helps. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
