    I am currently running windows 98 second edition and I am getting the following error message:

A required .DLL file, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSVCRT.DLL was not found.

Due to this error message I can no longer access my system. It boots up but will not allow me to access windows desktop.

Can some please help me fix the problem?

    go here and get the file
    and put it in your c:\windows\system directory
    either boot to safe mode (tap F8 during boot, and choose safe mode) If you can or boot to a boot disk has a boot disk (one file, you will need to double click on it to crteate the boot disk
    and then copy the file from a floppy to the correct location
