Just upgraded my laptop from win95 to win98 and ran the SFC program.  Why am I finding a lot of dll that have changed where the previous date and time is newer than the current yet the version is either the same or older?  The laptop has 16mb, win98 doesn't seem to run well with this.

For optimal performance, Windows 98 needs 32-64mb of RAM.

Dates are very misleading on these files.  Files often take the current date (like Dr. Watson) or date of installation.  What you want to look for in running System File Checker is the version number.  Go with the higher version number.  And run it after each new installation, that way you'll know what programs are making changes.
