Q

Where I find my lost DLL files?

My operating system is Windows 98. Some DLL files have been lost and my computer freezes I suppose because of those lost DLLs. Where can I get the DLL files that I need? If I buy Windows XP to update my operating system, will it be affected for the lost DLLs?

These missing DLLs can be recovered from the Windows 98 CD-ROM. If you get the most recent version of WinZip, for instance, you can explore the CAB files and unpack the DLLs into the C:WINDOWSSYSTEM directory.

I am not sure if upgrading to XP with the missing .DLLs is such a good idea, but you may be able to get away with it.
