MSVCRT40.dll deleted by accident! HELP!

by verset2003 / June 7, 2007 8:53 PM PDT

Hi all,

was trying to be helpful in cleaning some muck off the folk's PC and deleted this file apparently. Have done a file search but can't locate it, and am afraid to reinstall the windows 98 program, though they do seem to have the necessary disks. I don't want to make it any worse! Can I copy this file from some resource on the net? Have done a search but can't find a simple answer to this problem. Any suggestions for a remedy would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for that - think it will do the trick, but will have to wait till I make it back to the folks' place in a couple of days. Will let you know how it goes. You're a champion for responding so swiftly...love your work!
