    Don't know whether Nitehawk will see this since you didn't post it as a reply to whatever previous thread was involved.

    When you ran SFC you may have had it add those files to the existing verification list, in which case you don't see them targeted again.

    You must be very cautious about how you interpret those findings as SFC is known to have problems distinguishing updated/altered files from actually corrupt ones. And in Win98 First Edition there are severe risks with using it to replace certain system files.
