Iam runing windows 98 and have been having trouble for some time now. iam not that good on computers but iam having a problem that it wont defrag and when i go to scan the disk it keeps reading over and over again. Also when using it it seems that it is running other programsand it has a tendancy to freeze for no reasin at all. Hope someone can help with these problems.

Run them both in safe mode. Restart your computer and tap F8 key every 5 seconds as it boots up. Once complete reboot as normal.

HI Heskey, I run Win 98SE and have another suggestion which you may find of interest.
If you go to click here and download a file called newdefrag.zip (near the bottom of the page) you will be able to install this in your Windows 98SE. This is the Defrag.exe file which they now install in Windows ME.
The file comes complete with all instructions for installation.
Apparently, by the time Microsoft had got to producing Windows ME they had sorted out the Defrag problem.
I find that the Defrag.exe file from Win ME is about 10 times faster than the standard 98SE file and is much more stable.
I have been using it for about nine months now with no problems whatsoever and it's FREE.

Also be sure to stop ALL running programs including the Screen Saver, A/V and Firewall.
