You can try different versions of MFC42.DLL to see if that helps...  I
have 4.21.7303 on my machine and PSP works fine. To see the version,
after using Find->Files or Folders... to find all copies, and in the
resulting Find window, right click on the copy located in Windows\System
(that's the copy win9x will use unless there's a different copy in the
folder of the program you're running), choose Properties, click on the
Version tab.

Wish I knew what installed 4.21.7303, here... could have been the IE5
beta1(?) - after an hour of searching for *any* version of MFC42.DLL on
www.microsoft.com support.microsoft.com & ftp.microsoft.com, I gave up
on them and did a web-wide search. Results:

Jay Garcia (keeper of the Unofficial FAQ for Netscape) has version
4.21.7022 @ http://www.jazzland.net/jgarcia/ufaq/downloads.html

Channel 1 Internet Utils has MFC42.DLL v4.21.7160 @
http://www.allreality.com/support/software/runtime.html

Motorola has the newest version I could find on the web (4.21.7325) @
http://csps1.corp.mot.com/MIMS/lexicus/patches/index.html
