    check in c:\windows\inf\infback and see if there is a copy there. If there is try copying it to c:\windows\inf

    You can extract a new copy.

    Go to Start -> RUN and type MSCONFIG. Then Click on Extract File and type in Apps.inf and click Start. Now Select the location of your Windows ME installation files, ie. D:\WIN9X, and the location to pplace to the file, C:\windows\inf and click OK.

    Then I would strongly recommend you do a virus scan at housecall.trendmicro.com
