Corrupt registry

Question

Could you please help me with an Registery Error found everytime I boot up my system. It needs to restore everytime I reboot. I did a system file Check on it and found this.

System film may be corrupted:

File:extrac32.dll

Location:\Windows

file:d3drm.dll

Location:\windows\system

File:d3dpmesh.dll

Location:\windows\system

File:d3dxof.dll

I didn't know how or where to restore these files from so I clicked on ignore for now, should I do something about this? I thank you for any help you can give me on this problem.

Sincerely,

Judy

Here is one way to fix you corrupt registry.

Re-boot PC, when you see "Starting Windows 95" hit F8, or for Windows 98 hit the Control key (Ctrl) just before "Starting Windows 98" comes on and hold it to you see a menu Next select "Command Prompt Only" You will be left at C:\ Type the following commands:

ATTRIB SYSTEM.1ST -R -H -S

CD\WINDOWS

ATTRIB SYSTEM.DAT -R -H -S

REN SYSTEM.DAT SYSTEM.666 [This is in case you need to revert back to the original file]

CDCOPY SYSTEM.1ST C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DAT
