I am getting the following errors when booting up into windows 98:
the following file is missing/corrupted: c:\dos\setver.exe, emh386.exe, ansi.sys and D:\windows\himem.sys.  it shows that there are errors on certain lines of those files.

 

would a re-install fix this?  i  was reading somewhere that if you re-install windows, it does not touch the files, like documents and picutres, but only system files.

Do you have your boot disk? Can you get to a command line prompt.
