Sidekick 98 for Windows suddenly stopped launching - with Windows 7 Professional

Sidekick 98 for Windows suddenly stopped launching - with Windows 7 Professional

(OP)
Until a few hours ago, SKW was working fine. I had another computer issue, and some changes were made by an MS tech. SKW still
ran okay.

Then I tried to see which startup app might be causing the problem, and began removing them (in msconfig startup) 2 or 3 at a time.
All the files I removed from the Startup list are back. But even after several reboots, SKW won't run! It starts, then instantly stops.

After several more tries, I removed it with Windows add/remove. Then I went to the SKW Install files..... but the SKW SETUP won't launch!

I've tried each with and without Run as Administrator. I tried each with compatability for Win XP as well as Win 7. It won't run!

Could some utility needed for running 32 bit on a 64 bit system be missing?
