|In fact it is sndvol32.exe (not sndvol.exe) and it goes in c:\windows. Either the W98 or W98SE one will do.|
If you have the W98SE CD then it is there in "Win98_46.cab". I can't see much point reloading Windows for this issue, unless it turns out that there are other files missing.
If you have no Win98SE CD it is worth searching your HD for "Win98_46.cab" because sometimes folk save a copy of the Windows CD on there somewhere.
If not I could send one if you use Private Message feature to contact me with your email address. Don't put it here in open text or the spammers engines will find it.
some other bloke...
