Default mscat32.dll :(

hello everyone, hope someone can help me. i have a
pen3 850 mhz i upgraded from 450 mhz,a couple weeks befor problem.
512 ram
win98se
geforce 2 32 meg
dsl, nortons anti virus 2002
when i open a window and minimize it , it disappears?it doesnt go to my task bar, so i ran system file checker and this is what i found,mscat32.dll corrupt, try to fix using win98se cd and info not found so i found a site that has the file and downloaded it and renamed my old file so i wouldnt lose it and i think i installed the new file that i downloaded because i extracted it to window/system where the other one was. i didnt copy and paste , just extracted, and did another
a system file check and now it says that mssip32.dll is corrupt so i do the same for that file and do a sfc again and it says mssign32.dll is corrupt , so i do the same and now it says a cryptui.dll file is corrupt , so i try to do the same for that one and it wont work, i get this message from winzip.

Extracting to "c:\windows\system\"
Use Path: yes Overlay Files: no
Error: The process cannot access the file because
it is being used by another process.
Cannot create c:/windows/system/cryptui.dll

ok i fixed the problem, had to start in dos and delete file then go back and replace it, everything is working good now, and i think i found out what cause the corrupt files in the first place, i had the friends greetings worm virus. so i go rid of that and went into my add and remove ,to remove friend greeting and my task bar was working again. remember i said i couldnt minimize windows in my task bar. so thanx for all your advice , for im back on the right track again, for a while anyway
