Hey all,

I had about 2 viruses and 4 malicous programs on my comp which I got rid of through a virus scanner.

Now my problem is that not many of my programs are working properly including but not exclusive to ICQ, Word (probably all of office) and a few others.

I had this problem a couple of years ago and someone posted a site where you can download a prog that'll repair win98 after viruses have dmg'ed it.

Does anyone know where I can find the latest fix for this???

Also, isn't there a way with win98 where you can fix it by uninstalling something, but instand of it uninstalling it asks if you want to repair....?

Hope you can help...

Thx again
S.

Right click on the ICQ icon and select Properties. Look at the target location and then click Find Target. Verify manually whether the file is actually there.

If it isn't you may either need to do a Find Files for it and manually move it back there, create a new shortcut, or remove and reinstall ICQ
