The good news is...there is no MSVCRT.DCC in Win98. The bad news is...that file is supposed to be MSVCRT.DLL. :tazz: Because we don't know why this file has changed, we'll replace it.

Download the file from HERE. Extract the file to your desktop. Copy the extracted file to a floppy, put the floppy in the bad machine. Open the floppy drive using "My Computer" and right-click on the file...Choose "Copy".

Now Open C:Windows\System and "Paste" the file into the "System" folder. If it askes about replacing the current file, choose "Yes" or "Ok". Remove the floppy from the drive and reboot.

Still get the error?

Let's see if we can trick the machine into another copy...Copy the dll file you downloaded to a blank floppy

Start with the startup floppy disk and get to the command prompt (A:\)

Put the floppy with the dll file on it in the floppy drive in place of the startup disk.

Type copy *.* c:\windows\system and press "Enter".

Let me know if this copies.

Ok it copied successfully :tazz:

And I was able boot windows without the error messages :)
However When I first turned on PC it still came up with the option 1 & 2 if I wanted to use CD ROM and after I selected 2 without CD ROM it styaed it could not read drive or Disk A and prompted me with options of Abort, Retrt and Fail, I aborted and it went into windows ok
