I recently had my brower hijacked. I posted the problem in this forum and your
techs help me remove & resolve the problem.

However I have a few other problems as a result of being hijacked.

I have lost the ability to use my Windows 98 troubleshooter.
It seems the C:\Windows\Help\tshoot98.chm is missing information.

When I click Start/Help/troubleshooting/windows98 troubleshooters

The troubleshooter appears then when I click on any of the items.
Such as " Startup and Shutdown", I only get the first page.

Windows 98 Startup and Shutdown Troubleshooter
What problem are you having?
I'm getting an error message stating "MSGSRV32 Caused GPF in CM8330SB.DRV" when I shut down Windows 98.
When I start my computer, an Invalid VxD error message appears.
My computer stops responding when I try to start Windows 98.
My computer stops responding when I try to shut down Windows 98.

If I tick any of the options listed I get a blank page.

How can I restore the misssing information?

Been away a few days.

I think I have tried this but maybe you could direct me .

What would be the file I would need to extract from the CD?

It as been a while since I tried this ,but it seems the file I was
looking for was not found on my CD.

SFC is for System File Checker. It checks the integrity of required system files, and if missing or corrupt, it will replace them from the Windows CD.
