    go into dos, if u don't know how then look later in this post. to delete a file in dos:

    the hard drive has to be fat32 first of all, ok here is how to do it.
    type: 'Delete C:\windows\system\ddraw.dll'



    To access dos: make a dos startup disk by either creating one from add\remove programs in windows 98\me, or by downloading one by searching google for it.

    The disc doesn't have to be Fat32, if it's NTFS, you can still delete the file.

    For XP, it's "del file path"

    alrite i got it to work, and now no error. funny thing is that "delete" c:/windows/system/ddraw.dll didnt work but erase c:/windows/system/ddraw.dll did.

    anyway thanks for the help.
