I've just had my computer fixed (HDD cleaned out due to a virus infection, among other problems).  But when I try to install several programs like Download Accelerator Plus and Yahoo Messenger, I get this message:

DAP53[1] caused a general protection fault
in module LPKTHAI.DLL at 0002:00000e94.

I checked and found via google.com that this is a problem relating to Windows98 SE Thai edition, which I'm using and maybe related to the MS Word 97 language switcher.
I found one comment telling me to boot to DOS, type c:\dir/s lpkthai.dll and renaming the file.  But I don't know how to rename a file in DOS.
I've been unable to solve this problem or install many programs that I need.  Please help.  Thank you.

To rename a file in Dos.....

IE: C:> Ren lpkthai.dll whatever.old

so C:> being the drive and directory you are in.  lpkthai.dll being the file name you wish to change.  and whatever.old being whatever you want to call it.  
So first you need to find out where the lpkthai.dll file is located and then go to that directory and rename it.

I tried downloading bcwipe to delete the problem file and it worked! Thanks for the comments.

Hmmm...so do you plan to close the question?  I basically told you the right commands to rename the document in dos.  Which would do the same thing as bcwipe but without having to download anything.

Just curious.

I followed your advice to the letter and tried renaming the file and it seemed to work while I was in DOS but when I get to Windows the file was still there and the same problem persisted. I tried renaming it on a number of occasions, but to no avail.
Thanks for the help. I'll close the question.
