I desperately need help
OK, when i start me computer i get this mesage: The TEMP$01.exe file is linked to missing export BATMERER.dll, Destroy BAT METER.
but i can't destryo BATMETER!! it's in c:/windows/system (win98)
any that can help please do so!! whould it be ok to just delete TEMP$01.exe??
Was it ScanDisk that reported the problem, or just a message that came up? If it was ScanDisk, then probably the two files are crosslinked, and chances are that one or both are already damaged. You need to find out what programs put them there and see if you can replace them. You may have to restart in DOS mode to replace the batmeter.dll if Windows was using it.
If it wasn't ScanDisk, I'd suspect a virus. Are you running up-to-date antivirus software? I've never heard of TEMP$01.exe or BATMETER.dll.
I don't know if this has been any help, just my $.02
I just did some searching. When I searched for TEMP$01.exe, all I got were 5 hits, each one talking about viruses. I'm really not clear if it is part of a virus attack or if it is commonly infected by viruses (most of the sites were in foreign languages).
It appears as if batmeter.dll is a real file though. If you want to replace it, you can download it here: http://solo.abac.com/dllarchive/B.html
Please let us know what you find out!
be sure to download batmeter.dll (or is it batmerer.dll?) so that if the computer refuses to boot back up, you'll be able to save yourself from disaster.
just a thought.
renaming files is typically better in this situation. ie: rename the .exe to .old or whatever suites your fancy. that way if you fail to boot you can boot to a command prompt and rename it back.
i would wonder what in the system files (autoexec, config, sys/win.ini, registry, or startup) is pointing at that file. although blaming erratic behavior on viruses is typically a desperate attempt for an explanation, it might just be the case here.
i deleted the 2 .exe files and i rebooted and the same error came up (but when i deleted them i just sent them to recycle bin) now i totally deleted then (hold shift and press delete) i haven't rebotted from that though.

um, isn't batmeter.dll the microsoft battery meter helper dll? it's on my machine, although i've never heard of it myself, the properties of the file and version says it's microsoft file, copyright and all,version 5.00.0319.0
i think you have a missing system file, windows is expecting to find this file and it's not there, maybe, dunno, perform a file search and see if you can find batmeter.dll
certainly someone is familiar with this system file....? no.
, i dont think it's a virus of any sort, a fluke perhaps, have a close look at your system files, do autoexec and config.sys have anything in them at all - or you could put that win98 cd in the ol' cdrom and then type setup, see what happens after that --- maybe im completey wrong, could be some killer computer virus -- and your pc was the first to be infected.
Check you WIN.INI and SYSTEM.INI to be sure there's nothing in the LOAD= or nothing added to the SHELL= lines. Several of the viruses I've had have modified one of these lines and I get the same reults you are getting.
