Sounds like you ran repair and it may have failed.
So I have several questions;
Have you tried booting in safe mode? Does that work? If so you could select last known good as an option and try that.
Also sounds like the file you replaced the missing one with may not have been the correct version and that can cause a conflict. The file you installed may need to be updated. Since you know the missing file (I found that usually DLL's get corrupted so I'm guessing here) you could just download the needed file from
Best thing to do is,try to get a Windows 98 cd from a friend who has some computer skills and ask them to temporarily put in a cdrom drive in order to begin the process of repair.You will also need them to hook up a floppy drive in your computer,as you will need the floppy disk,containing the files to load the cdrom drivers and setup files to do the repairs to your windows 98 operating system....if not,you may need to upgrade to windows xp or Vista.Good luck:)
If this just happed, nothing was deleted or installed, I would try to run Spinrite before you go down the path of a rebuild. it maybe possible to restore this file with Spinrite. I have done this before. Spinrite is pricey but can be used on other PC's for drive maintenance.
Try starting in 'SAFE MODE'.
Type CMD and press ENTER.
Type 'CHKDSK C: /F' and press ENTER.
If you are prompted to shutdown & restart to run the "check disk", do so.
During the restart, "check disk" will find/repair any file-system problems, and then restart in "normal" mode.
If you have the install disk, try and boot from the disk and reinstall. To change boot order, press the key to enter bios. (different on different pc's) Common ones are f8, and delete. If you have valuable data on the Computer you dont want to lose, then use a recovery disk. (BartPe is a good one. Just google it.)
"That's the file that XP uses to start. Sometimes it just becomes corrupted and doesnt work or goes MIA. But if youre on an XP machine now. Go to system root (C:) and make sure youre viewing all files, file extentions and system files (Set these in Tools>Folder Options>View) and just copy thats machines NTLDR file to a floppy disk. You will see it at system root after system files are showing. And while youre on that machine you could also make a NTFS bootable floppy, or use a 98 boot disk as well. That way you can get to the command propt and dump the new NTLDR into YOUR C: drive. If youre confused by any of that please let me know, we all love to help :)"
Quoted from 0S1R1S on another site,
but is correct, may need to go into safe mode to load this into the computer. from operating pc to another. if you have a friend that also has the XP software you can copy it from thier pc. Hope it helps.
It means that some files needed for windows to restart are missing,probably a system file or boot files. Some windows xp users usually re-install and repair their windows xp system using their original windows xp install disk and selecting the "repair" ooption. But another practical solution is to note down the missing file, then,on another PC using the same system,search for that file and copy, though you will have to note the folder location of that missing file from another PC. Boot your PC (the one that doesn't boot) with a system diskand on the command prompt (DOS prompt) copy the missing file from yourcopy disk to the same location where the missing file should be situated.
If the practical suggestion wouldn't work, then you have to re-install your windows on top of the current installation using your windows cd to repair yourwindows sytem, if this still doesn't then you have to install a new windows systemlocated in a different location in your disk, this way you still go to your saved files and backup your files.
