Replace Win95 DLLs with original?

I know there's a way to replace the Win95 system files (DLLs etc.) with the original ones, without reinstalling.

I need this, because some program (don't know which) replaced one and now I get runtime errors in other applications.

Tried TweakUI "replace system files" but it didn't work...

Anyone?

Thanks in advance,
Henrie.

You can open original CAB (cabinet) files from Win95 installation
with dbl-click, then locate needed DLL, select it and File -> Extract.
That's it.

Sorry busuka, I don't know what files were replaced. I only get a runtime error at a certain address, No error in DLL as one gets usually...

I don't want to copy everything manually.

I know there's a way to replace system files without having to reinstall W95...
Was it a setup option?

Anyone else?

There is no setup option for this---  If you run the reinstall over the current install, and choose specifically which files to overwrite, there you can choose the appropriate DLLs.  

It will take a much shorter time than trying to track everything down.

If you choose this decision, request that I post this as the answer...

Steve, post your answer and I'll give you the points, though I'm sure there's another way to do this.
I used it in the past, but I've forgotten how I did it. When I find it, I'll let you know.

Thanks to all,
Henrie.

I just remembered another method. I'd still go with Steve's answer 1st though.
Then if that does not do it,
run setup to a new directory/folder Like C:\NewWin95.
Then boot to C prompt only using the F8 button on bootup.
Then  CD WINDOWS\SYSTEMS
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEMS>COPY *.DLL C:\NEWWIN95

When you're done coping files, and all is well.
C:\>DELTREE NewWin95

This will be a secondary method to Steves.
