Hello,
I'm posting this from another computer. My main computer uses Windows 98. I
can not use that computer to access the internet anymore. Here's what
happened and what I've tried to do to remedy the situation:
I was downloading a program onto my Win98 computer and chose to overwrite
some files which I did not understand (dumb). I started having problems (not
the shdoclc problem), so I ran a free registry repair program (also dumb
since I don't understand this stuff very well). I *think* that's when I
started getting the above error. SO ... I backed up all my files and ran my
HP Pavilion System Recovery disk (the only disks I have). I reformatted and
recovered all programs. The disk seemed to have some problems -- i.e. I
needed to hit "retry" several times and "abort" one time to get it to run
and finish its task. But the recovery seemed to be complete. But then when I
tried to connect, I got the same message. So I tried to take a copy of the
shdoclc file from another computer and replace that file on my damaged Win98
computer, but I couldn't replace it because "windows [was] using the
specified file".
I have no idea where to go from here. Should I buy a Win98 disk? Is there
any way to reroute around this problem?
Any help would be VERY MUCH appreciated.
Thanks,
Fred

1. LSP-Fix should solve your connection problem:

2. Now, find the hijackware that caused the problem.

Several things you can do.
1:Add Remove Programs list and go to remove MS Internet Explorer.When
you start the process it will give you the option to repair if you
updated IE.Take it and re-boot and see how you go.

2::Repair over-install as per,

3:Install/Re-install dun 1.4 update,

Hi Shep,
Thanks for the recommendations, but IE does not show up under "Add/Remove
Programs". I forgot to mention that I also tried installing IE5 from an
older disk that I have. That did not work either. So it doesn't appear that
IE is the problem.
Also, I don't have a Win98 disk, just a System Recovery disk designed
exclusively for my model of HP Pavilion.
PLUS ... I don't have internet access on that computer, so I'm sure if I can
follow these recommendations.
But I did follow option 3, and that didn't work. I was able to instal the
dun update, but I still got the same message after I restarted my computer.
Any other ideas anyone?

msinfo32 doesn't contain an internet repair option on this computer.
I have not tried making a DUN connection. I'm not sure how to do that.
That's dial-up, right? What would that do?
