    i have gone to dll-files.com and downloaded the missing file and i when i log onto Windows (98se) i still get the same message. what did i do wrong? what should i be doing? could it be a case of downloading the file into the wrong place or file??????

    You may need the installation cd for this.

    Right click "NetworkNeighborhood" on your desktop and click "Properties", highlight "Client For Microsoft Networks" and uninstall it, then click "install", highlight "clients" and open or add, and then find "Client For Microsoft Networks", install, then it should ask for your win98 cd, just put it in your cd or dvd drive and restart PC.

    Oh, and you know that that MSNP32.dll file goes in the windows system folder? And make sure it's 80kB as well, otherwise you might have another version of it.

    just want to verify that when you say: then find "Client for Microsoft Networks"

    that you are meaning that i will have to locate it off the cd? if this is not correct where will i find it at?

    when you highlight clients and open it, it will then take you to another screen to choose it, you'll see, just follow the instructions.

    The simple solution "Right click "NetworkNeighborhood" on your desktop and click "Properties", highlight "Client For Microsoft Networks" and uninstall it, then click "install", highlight "clients" and open or add, and then find "Client For Microsoft Networks", install, then it should ask for your win98 cd, just put it in your cd or dvd drive and restart PC" does not really do anyting.

    No files are ever replaced or copied. Also you are never prompted for the source files. Just give it a try.

    For example, I tried renaming the file MSNP32.dll. After uninstalling and reinstall the Client for Microsoft Networks as suggested, the files is still missing.

    You can either:

    1. Extract the DLL file to the \windows\system directory or

    2. Completely remove all the networking components (Client, Adapter and Protocol) and reboot. This will actually reinstall all the networking files which will include the missing one.
