missing windows 98 slmss.exe file

I recently had a trojan infect my windows 98 slmss.exe file and as a removal fix the file was deleted. Can I download this file somewhere on the web. I was told by someone that there is a place on the web where you can scan the entire windows program for missing and corrupt files and then download the files you need. Fact or Fiction?

Greetings, l_reber!

slmss.exe is not part of Windows 98 and can be removed.  Do a search for it in registry and remove it.  Or run HijackThis, review the log, and remove slmss.exe.

I agree with war1.

To address your other question, you don't need the web to scan for missing or corrupt files.  Just Click Start, Run, type sfc, click OK and do a full scan.  Have your Win98 CD ready.
