    SFC gives a false bad user.exe. If there was a problem with user.exe you wouldn't be here - machine wouldn't work. My user.exe has been corrupt for 5 yrs. and no problems. Just ignore SFC on this one.

    1) point sfc to c:\windows\options\cabs and see if it finds the file there.

    2) borrow a windows cd and point sfc to it

    3) point it to the windows directory(if you can find it) on your restore cd and see if it works

    4) restore your system.

    thats about it. Packard bell tech support gave me the method for manually unzipping software one application/file at a time from their restore cd's a LONG (read at LEAST 3 or 4 years) ago but I have since lost it and was unable to find any references online for you.

    Thanks Wino and jtoast ! I appreciate all the good info and will absolutely give the resolutions a try but just wanted to let you know I,m not using the Desktop comp. with the problem I'm using my Thinkpad. the desktop is Win 98 if that helps. When I try to sign on to Aol I get a popup (everytime I try to sign on to the net ) that says Waol has caused an invalid page fault in module W32_32.DLL.This program has caused an illegal operation and will be closed down.If problem persists contact program vendor. When I contacted Aol they told me it is aproblem with my Paint files which is the most important files (The Dll Files ). If I go ahead and try to sign on anyways I can't get any farther than the screen that says requesting network attention. Thank-You so much for your time...Izzy
