This is for the help u gave me a while back on my lock up problem. I found out what the problem was after I gave up and decided to format and install windows. My cab files were corrupted. Thanks for your help though.

I'm not sure exactly which one. When I tried to reinstall using the original cab files the problem persisted. After everything we did I knew it wasn't hardware so I went and got the cd and tried using that and it worked. I'm pretty sure it had something to do with either the explore.exe, user.exe, shell32.dll, or rundll.exe (can't remember what cabs these are in). But since I found out after a format I can't be sure.

Ajnin, <When I tried to reinstall using the original cab files>, where are those files saved in the harddisk?  You're reinstall win98 by overtop?    pslh

Yes the cab files where on the hard drive what I did which is standard practice here is to copy the entire contents of the user's HD to an extra HD that we have for this purpose. At the time though, since we're in the middle of moving locations, I did not have any of the OS cds with me so I copied the cab files back to the user's oringinal HD (After deleting the partition (fdisk) and formating the oringinal HD) The boot disk I used to do this is one of a set that we use (it's the w98SE boot disk we've just changed the boot options) Yes this was win98 se. Hope this clears it up
