I'm trying to find a source to replace a few lost system files for Windows 98 which had to be deleted due to viral infection. The system still operates, but I'm sure the files are still of some importance and they don't appear to be anywhere on my Win98 cd. The missing files are as follows:

Windows\Command\rundle2.exe
Windows\Command\rundle.exe
Windows\Java\Server\saw.exe
Windows\Java\Server\set.exe
Windows\Java\Server\was.exe
Windows\Java\Server\textdrive.exe
Windows\deadday.exe

It sounds like you have all ready done the scan. You may delete those files as they are created by the virus, do not belong with Windows and cannot be replaced.

You may need help editing the registry, see this symantec link for instructions. The virus named here is its alias:

Moving to the Security forum...

Thanks for the input guys. I wasn't aware that Trojans create their own files rather than attacking the existing ones. The trojan files were deleted by Norton before serious damage was done. I'll try that site to check my registry. As you said Rollin' Rog, it was a Java Killer.
