When I run nuts and bolts pc checkup it tells me it can't find  windows/system/CTL3D.DLL. Does anyone know what this is or does? Can it be replaced? Do I really need to care/worry? It has never told me this before.
Also, at start-up in the dos part it says:
c:\>if exist pipost.bat call pipost.bat
c:\>if exist paprfix.bat call paprfix.bat
What about these?
If I remeber correctly this started when I updated my McAffee virus scan. I had to uninstall it because my computer froze at start up. I had to manually shut down and when it ran scan disc it said I had a lost cluster.
It did this everytime until I uninstalled the virus scan.
any suggestions about this problem.
Thank you

The DLL has been wiped out or changed to some other dll -version. Go to http://www.filez.com and find downloadable CTL3d.dll. If I correctly recall, it's used to produce the 3D-effect on buttons of applications

I couldn't fine it on filez but I found it at other places. This address seem to have the most current version.http://www.iwl.net/users/nbaer/Drafix/WINCAD2/
Is this what I want?
Now don't laugh but how do I copy this to my Nuts n Bolts Directory?

You dont have to visit any web sites.  You are right about the problem coming from Macafee,  but all you have to do is install the dll file from your win95 disk under setup!  
   Remove the 2 lines about the batch files from the auto exec.

I don't have a start up disc. Windows 95 came with my computer. And to be honest the last instruction went right over my head. As you can tell I know little to nothing about computers.
