Are you getting an error stating you need to update this file?

Using system file checker, you can replace shell32.dll from your Windows cd. It might just be corrupted.

Go to Start/Run... type in sfc then have it check your system. Heres a link on how to use SFC to replace corrupted windows files.

Do you have any other problems related to shell32.dll other than the fact you can't copy/paste 2gig files?

Did you run sfc to check if it was corrupted? Even if it's not, have sfc replace the file from your win98 cd and see if it helps.
