Hi. After running sfc /scannow, I get the usual missing dll message. After
trying to fix the problem by changing the sourcepath entries, I still have
the problem which makes me think my I386 folder is damaged. I cannot locate
the I386 folder on my restore disks, the only disks I received when I
purchased the laptop. I also have Windows 98 on my desktop and would like to
upgrade to XP. My question is: Will the upgradable version have what I need
to fix those pesky dlls, if I'm going to buy it to upgrade my 98 anyway? Or
would I have to get the full version? Thanks!

The Upgrade version of XP has exactly the same files as the full version

Hi,

Most probably your restore disks have an image of the hard drive in the factory default settings.
