win.ini is important but it is also small.  I'm not sure about Win 98 but in W2K it comes in at about 0.5 K.  You can open it as a text file.  Finding out what doesn't belong should be simple.  It should only have section names in braces and single line arguments along the lines of "WPWINFIL=0x0006" or "asx=MPEGVideo" depending on what section you are looking at.

As I said, I'm not sure about the scope of its use in Win98 but a virus infection should stick out.

Okay, I'm a programmer not a sys admin.  Don't hate me.
