SYSTEM FILE CHECKER INDICATES ALTERED FILES

Post by SEH » Sat, 03 Apr 2004 23:43:24


Yesterday I installed Roxio Easy Creator on my cd/rw drive.
Today SFC indicated that the following files were altered:
inetwh32.dll
itss.dll
itircl.dll
msvcirt.dll
hhctrlui.dll

But when I tried to restore the original settings, I
cannot find these files on the Win98 disk that came with
my Dell computer.

Can anyone help?

This may be normal, i.e. Win98 is years old
and updated DLL files may be loaded by new
software installations.


For DLL information, go to this URL.

If Dell (1) preinstals the OS in the factory
(2) supplies custom disk instead of MS Win98
disk,
you may be out of luck. But do you need to
restore old DLLs? What is the operating
problem?

Inetwh32.dll is supplied by many third party applications and is not
on a Win98 CD.
Itss.dll, itircl.dll and msvcirt.dll are in the .cab files in a Win98
CD (no idea what you have in a Dell CD)
Hhctrlui.dll is in an IE5.5 file list.

I would never use SFC for anything but extracting files from a Win98
CD and if you do not use it all the time, read these:

Thanks for the URL's. I should have read them after
installing Roxio and before running SFC.

Thanks for responding. Your comment is right on point. I
thought that SFC was used to check for corrupt files.
I've now learned that a file that has been altered is not
necessarily corrupt and trying to restore the original may
just cause more trouble.
