Ok first I'ahh... ahh am so dumb. :confused:
While doing some tweaks on my windows 98se I deleted and then dumped ot of my recycle bin most of my default fonts in fact all but the ones windows keeps me from dumping. Now I am in a hell of a pickle as I do not have the 98 disc to reinstall windows so now what? Besides the "that was stupid" remark that the wife knows oh so well.
Guess what I did not make a back up either. Just keeps getting better so this is the one place that maybe could help me from almost certain doom. Help........any sugestions?

See if you have one of the following folders:

C:\WIN98

C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS


There should be several .CAB files and a "Setup.exe" file present in one of them.

Double-clicking the "Setup.exe" file will allow you to reinstall Windows over itself and replace those core fonts.

You'll need to have the 25-digit product code handy to enter when prompted to, and you'll want to reinstall Windows in the C:\WINDOWS folder and not C:\WINDOWS.000 or somewhere else.

Don't do that just yet though because someone else may have a simpler solution.
