I got some WFW 3.11 floppies about a year ago with a similar problem. Turns out the disks had gone bad during storage.

I'd suggest trying it on another system - and if that doesn't work, then start looking for the replacement files on the web.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I have the Knack. **  If I haven't replied in 48 hours, please send me a message. My eye problems have recently increased and I'm having difficult reading posts. (23 Nov 2017)FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.<p>If the eye problems get worse suddenly, I may not be able to respond.If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.

OK. Then try this one. I have this. I have no use for it anymore, but it was a life saver in my Xp and 98 days.
