Please forgive me everyone...I've given myself 40 lashes.

Thanks to all the replies for restoring the file
How to repair damage from a
SULFNBK.EXE, a utility shipped as part of the
Windows 98 operating system that allows users to
restore long file names, and now the victim of a
bogus virus warning. The hoax message urges
users to search their systems for the presence of
SULFNBK.EXE and, if found, delete it. Of course,
it's a legitimate Win98 operating system file, so
anyone running Windows 98 will find it. And
many, it seems, have deleted it. Following are the
steps to take to restore SULFNBK.EXE from
your Windows 98 operating system CD. You will want
to have your Windows 98 operating CD in
the CD-ROM drive bay. If the program autoruns
(launches), just click Exit.
Windows 98 includes a handy tool known as the
System File Checker
which can be used to restore
damaged or deleted
files. To open SFC, click "Start"
| "Run" and type
"SFC" without the quotes. Click
"OK". System File
Checker will launch a dialogue box
with two choices.
Choose "Extract one file from
In the "Specify the
system file you would like to restore" box, type "sulfnbk.exe"
quotes). Click "Start".
You will be
prompted to specify the location that contains the file you want to
extract and the
destination directory for that file. You will need to input the
location and the "Save file in" location.
"Restore from" will be the win98 folder on your
Windows 98 operating system CD. It is easiest and most accurate to use
"Browse" button to locate and select the folder.
The "Save file in" destination folder is the Windows directory and
subdirectory. For example,
When both boxes have been filled in, click OK. You
should receive a message stating "The file has been successfully
extracted". Click OK and close any remaining SFC
One final note, if you're one of the unfortunate
who purchased a computer that comes with the notorious "Restore CD"
probably will not be able to use that CD to
restore the file (or install new hardware, or update/replace drivers, or
do much of
anything except restore your system to factory
defaults). Contact your computer vendor and ask them to send you a true
of the Windows 98 operating system that you
purchased with your system. Oh... and good luck getting them to send it.
