I switched my PC off too quickly at the weekend and corrupted a couple of files. Reloaded WIN98, but have two file errors.

One on boot up asking me to re-install an application that was using it.

C:\progra"\symantec\symevnt.386

Not sure what the character is though after progr.

Looks like an italic quotation mark! How do I get this?

I thought it was my CD-writer that was using this file, but re-installed and still get this message.

Also this file:

PTSNOOP.EXE

Found it in WIN.INI

load=PTSNOOP.EXE

Do I delete all the above line and save?

Thanks!

Is the symbol your looking for ~? Thats usually used to abbreviate long folder names...

In the WIN.INI file, type in a semi-colon in front of the "load" and "run" commands so they look like this:

;load=

;run=

Save the changes, then reboot.
