Is there a program available online which will repair or replace bad files in Windows 98? If not is removing and reinstalling the only option?

You can always extract new copies from your Microsoft Windows CD. What files are bad, do you know? What happened prior to them going "bad", any more background on the problem that we need to know?

If you can post some of the error messages and what your doing when they occur we may be able to help. It may be a case where you have multiples of a certain file rather than a "bad" version. Anyway, without knowing more details, it's hard to help.

Short of that and to answer your original question, you can extract new copies of Windows files from your CD using SFC.

The article below explains it. Scroll down to the section titled "Windows 98 and Windows 98 Second Edition" ...
