Peter,

You might well be able to restore the files from your backup cab files - I thought you meant the files off the Win 98 CD.

Try using the System File Checker in Win 98 (I *think* you go Start > Run, and type 'SFC' and press Enter), and choose the option to extract Windows file, and just follow the instructions to direct it to extract the correct file. I don't use Win 98, so I can't tell you exactly how to do it, sorry.

Mike.
