One of my control panel files (timedate.cpl) is corrupt. It puts the wrong modified date on files and does not let me change the date in display options. Can someone give me the instructions on how to extract this file from the w98 cd rom? i wnet to System Infoa nd tried to add the file but i did not know what .cab file it was located in and how to extract just that one file.I am aware that there is also a wat to do it in dos but im not sure how.

Hi,

Make sure your Windows CD-ROM's in the drive.
Go to Start/run, and type SFC.
Choose 'Extract One File From Installation Disk'.
Type timedate.cpl, not worrying about its location. Then, click Start.

Next to 'Restore From', type in or browse for the file’s location, which is probably in the Win98 folder of your installation CD-ROM (typically D:\Win98). Then, next to 'Save File In', enter C:\Windows\System, and click OK. System File Checker looks for the file, saves it as you requested, and then tells you that 'the file has been successfully extracted'.

THat's all there is to it.

Good luck,
