    I have tried using the Windows 98 SE "System File Checker" and it
    occasionally asks when scanning for altered files to restore corrupted
    system files (e.g. *.dll's, etc.).

    1) Should I put in the Win 98 SE CD and let it do it's thing?

    2) Will this do any damage to my machine? It does give me the "blue screen
    of death" occasionally...

    3) any other advice on using "System File Checker"??

    Ignore any messages about "user.exe" and "setup.dll", this is a bug in Win98
    SFC. It's so long since I've done it not sure if it's maybe "user.dll" and

    Unless you are having trouble with something, then I wouldn't automatically
    do that. SFC can sometimes flag legit files as corrupt, merely because they
    are newer versions not identified properly. This has happened with IE
    updates many times.
    If you think it may be related to the error, then yes you can try it, but
    always opt to back up the file you are replacing, and note it's location.

    Yes. Don't use it.

    Have a nice week...
