Using System File Checker

Windows will often act strange or go down for the count because of a corrupted or missing system file, or because a crucial system file has been replaced with an older version by a brain-dead installation program. (Note that these system files include not only the programs used by Windows 98, but also support files such as those that use the extensions .DLL, .OCX, .SYS, .VXD, and so on.)

To help prevent these kinds of problems, and to recover from them if they happen, you can use Windows 98's new System File Checker utility. This program takes a snapshot of your system's configuration. It can then use that snapshot as a base from which to compare future configurations. If System File Checker detects corrupted, missing, or replaced system files, it can restore your system to a previously stable configuration.
