Can you use the backup disk of another computer that has win 98 on it to replace the missing files to another computer that has win 98 on it. (eg. explorer)

Yes you can, so long as it has exactly the same version of windows 98, and it depends on which files are required.

To make this more clear, files can be replaced, but the problem can be with registry entrys (that is if you are experiencing difficulties). The registry is a database which windows uses to remember where files are; what options are set in programs etc.

What I am saying is that if you are having a problem with one or two files, try replacing them from another computer with the same version of windows98, but remember that there are many other ways that your own version of windows98 can be at fault.
