Please accept my apology if you deleted it on my account.

(http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/sulfnbk.exe.warning.html):

If you have deleted this file, restoration is optional. Sulfnbk.exe is a
Microsoft Windows utility that is used to restore long file names. It is not
needed for normal system operation. If you want to restore it, there is more
than one way to do this. See the information that follows.

NOTE: The instructions in this document are provided for your convenience.
The extraction of Windows files uses Microsoft programs and commands.
Symantec does not provide warranty support for or assistance with Microsoft
products. If you have any questions, please see your Windows documentation
or contact Microsoft.

Windows Me
If you are using Windows Me, you can restore the file using the System
Configuration Utility.
1. Click Start and then click Run.
2. Type msconfig and then press Enter.
3. Click Extract Files. The "Extract one file from installation disk" dialog
box appears.
4. In the "Specify the system file you would like to restore" box, type the
following, and then click Start:

c:\windows\command\sulfnbk.exe

NOTE: If you installed Windows to a different location, make the appropriate
substitution.

The Extract File dialog box appears.

5. Next to the "Restore from" box, click Browse, and browse to the location
of the Windows installation files. If they were copied to the hard drive,
this is, by default, C:\Windows\Options\Install. You can also insert the
Windows installation CD in the CD-ROM drive and browse to that location.
6. Click OK and follow the prompts.


Windows 98
If you are using Windows 98, you can restore the file using the System File
Checker.
1. Click Start and then click Run.
2. Type sfc and then press Enter.
3. Click "Extract one file from installation disk."
4. In the "Specify the system file you would like to restore" box, type the
following, and then click Start:

c:\windows\command\sulfnbk.exe

NOTE: If you installed Windows to a different location, make the appropriate
substitution.

The Extract File dialog box appears.

5. Next to the "Restore from" box click Browse, and browse to the location
of the Windows installation files. If they were copied to the hard drive,
this is, by default, C:\Windows\Options\Cabs. You can also insert the
Windows installation CD in the CD-ROM drive and browse to that location.
6. Click OK and follow the prompts.

Windows 95 (or alternative method for Windows 98/Me)
If you are using Windows 95, you need to use the extract command. This can
also be used on Windows 98/Me.

1. Click Start, point to Find or Search, and then click Files or Folders.
2. Make sure that "Look in" is set to (C:) and that Include subfolders is
checked.
3. In the "Named" or "Search for..." box, type:

precopy1

4. Click Find Now or Search Now. If it does not exist on the hard drive,
then insert the Windows installation CD and repeat the search on that drive.
5. When you find the file, write down the location of Precopy1, for example,
C:\Windows\Options\Cabs. This is your Source Path.
6. The general form of the Extract command is:

extract <Source Path>\precopy1.cab sulfnbk.exe /L c:\windows\command

So if the source path is C:\Windows\Options\Cabs, then the Extract command
becomes:

extract c:\windows\options\cabs\precopy1.cab sulfnbk.exe /L
c:\windows\command

NOTE: If you installed Windows to a different location, make the appropriate
substitution.

7. Click Start and then click Run.
8. Type the following, making the appropriate substitutions as previously
noted

extract <Source Path>\precopy1.cab sulfnbk.exe /L c:\windows\command

9. Click OK.
