I run Win98.
I have a missing file,causing no sound when watching on-line videos.
I have downloaded file to Docs.
When i try to open file,it asks what program do i want to open file.
Can you let me know,and then tell me how to install file into C:Windows\System32 ??
Many Thanks

go to my docs.then tools>folder options>view> untick "hide extensions fo rknown file types.
then look at the item you downloaded....wgat file format is it....ie..download.RAR

after the dot is the important thing,,,then we will know what programme to use...
if it is rar or zip download winrar and then just double click the item to decompress it.
