    Hello all:
    I had some problems with my system, and it recommended a re-installation
    of the WIN98SE program. After the reinstallation, the system works fine,
    but the FIND command is now missing. When I hit START, the panel above it opens, listing PROGRAMS, DOCUMENTS, SETTINGS, HELP AND RUN, but
    FIND is missing. I cannot recall if it had been missing before the recent
    reinstall, or since. Can any one suggest where I can find my FIND command?
    Any suggestions will be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance for your usual brilliant inputs.

    Hello bocabill , Have you tried to go into "File Checker" and see what it can find , or not find (no pun intended). If anything is missing, you will be promted to insert your Windows CD , and it will install it .
    Good Luck !!

    Run regedit and look in the two locations specified here for NoFind and remove that if found. Alternately you can try searching the registry using Edit > Find from the registry editor, but make sure you start with the file tree closed.

    See if this note resolves it?

    BTW be careful running SFC. If this tool is NOT used before and after every install/uninstall, running it can result in erroneous information, including corrupted files that aren't!
