MFC71.dll

by Tathraman / March 20, 2006 12:29 PM PST

I'm getting an error message when starting up Win 98SE which says that this file is missing. It seems to relate to WinAntiVirus 2005, which I searched on the machine but isn't there. How do I prevent this message from re-appearing?
Cheers
David

Spybot and AdAware didn't pick anything up - and the
Ewido site tells me it is not designed for Win 98 - so I'm back to square 1.

I've no idea what WinAntiVirus is - but here's where I googled http://kb.winantivirus.com/index.php?do=view_question&id=234
. Hope this is enough information.
