When you click Add Folder on the Search Criteria tab in the System File Checker (Sfc.exe) tool, the Downloaded Program Files and Occache folders may be missing from the Windows folder.
To resolve this issue, remove the system attribute from the Downloaded Program Files (or Occache) folder, add it to System File Checker's search criteria, and then add the system attribute back to the folder. To do so, follow these steps:
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Windows 98.
The Downloaded Program Files folder is included in System File Checker's search criteria by default, but this issue occurs if you remove and then try to add it back to your search criteria. The Occache folder, which does not exist unless you upgraded from Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.x, is not included in System File Checker's search criteria by default, and this issue prevents you from being able to add it.
