When I start up my windows 95 I get a message that "msvcirt.dll" is missing.

Everything else looks like it is working all-right except Microsoft Publisher and Microsoft Outlook. They give the same message.

Can I find this anywhere on the net ?
What does this dll anyway ?
Are there any links available the different dll's are a little explained ?

Thx

Peter.

Oh yea ,
What is a dll?
---right from the Computer dictionary
Short for Dynamic Link Library, a library of executable
functions or data that can be used by a Windows
application. Typically, a DLL provides one or more
particular functions and a program accesses the
functions by creating either a static or dynamic link to
the DLL. A static link remains constant during program
execution while a dynamic link is created by the program
as needed. DLLs can also contain just data. DLL files
usually end with the extension .dll,.exe., drv, or .fon.

A DLL can be used by several applications at the same
time. Some DLLs are provided with the Windows
operating system and available for any Windows
application. Other DLLs are written for a particular
application and are loaded with the application.

I'll look for a site.
Here's a freeware that I use all the time.
DllShow.Zip
                         [File Dependencies, Printout and Excellent Resource Meter.]
See and download at http://www.execpc.com/~sbd/ OR http://www.execpc.com/~sbd/DLLShow.html 
DLL Show for Windows 95 is a small utility that displays a list of all tasks and processes currently
running on your MS Windows 95 system.
I like it better than Norton Utilities Resource meter.
It shows how much ram is used, when ram is used up it shows where your
swapfile takes over and how much free. and GDI.
==============
It will make a File Dependency List, Below is an exmple;
------
DLL Show - RNAAPP.EXE Module Dependency List

ADVAPI32.DLL      0x7EA22D1F      6      14      57344      3/22/1997      c:\windows\system\
