I have a laptop bought used. It did not come with a 98 Windows start-up disk. It displays now The following file is missing or corrupted Windows\Himen.Sys Windows\Dblbuff.sys Windows\Ifshlp.Sys. It did work for awhile, but now can't load windows. Do you have to have this 98 Windows start-up disk or is there a way around it. I'm helpless with a computer.

If it has worked, you may be lucky with this

Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 right after the beep until you get options, select command prompt only, type scanreg.exe /fix then press enter, it will run through a few screens then say registry repaired. Press enter then press ctrl + alt + delete keys together to reboot.

If not, you can borrow a 98SE CD if you need to replace system files
