    best way is to format.

    if u dont want to go to that extreme, uninstall any unnecessary software, delete unnecessary startup items, and run ccleaner to clean the disk and registry.

    Install Ccleaner and run it. Then do a defrag.

    thank you
    i did run the c cleaner in it and it all clean now i did gain some speed but not that much i also uninstall ad-aware.se just to see if i will be gaining speed but it did not so i install it back so i guess it about all i cant do i thing the best way it to take back to the guy and get it clean right out i dont know o_O? because when this guy clean my pc it really fast what he doing i dont know well for 45.00 he as to do some think all i want to do here is to buy a rooter and run the 98 and the xp at the same time i am on dailup and we are 3 users so the xp is my pc but i get kick out of it so they go chat so am fedup with that if i could fix that old 98 i dont really care about buying a rooter to get the peice on my computer
    one more thing do you think it will be time to run the c cleaner on my brand new xp what do you think o_O??all i have to do is downloadind it and use it some time i dont know o_O??because i did check the xp and there is a page 1/2 of stuff store it in there all the stuff i do not use any more so i dont know
    let me know as for the 98 i did 2 scan today and nothing fond so that it for that it all clean i guess

    what scans have you done?
    have you done a scan with superantispyware?
    i think it would be best to do a full reinstall of the windows 98 pc.
    link in my sig.

    i did a scan with[ AD-WARE.SE] AND[ AVG 7.5.432.861 ]
    now if i do reinstal 98 do i have to uninstal the one i have in now BEFORE OR AFTER I DOWNLOAD THE NEW 98
    and also do i will loose averything what i do have in now and start new
    also i will have to call my dailup supplyer to connect me again o_O? i thing this will be the best way to get it clean rigth out uninstall it and reinstall it
    because if i remember rigth we did have to call dailup supplyer avery time i get it clean out so by doing this reinstall 98 is the speed be the same as my xp o_O? because my xp is really fast for dailup 8 second to 50 for the same page for 98 so it more then 5 time slower then the xp i dont know if am suppose to get the same speed you know more then i do
    ho yes if i uninstall 98 first how i be able to install the new 98 because i will not have a page opening o_O? i dont know i never done this before o_O?
    let me know so i will go to google and find the uninstall and the reinstall
    rigth now i dont have anything to loose

    u can only uninstall windows if u upgraded from a previous version.

    otherwise u should format the disk (or partition) and then do a fresh install of Windows 98.

    you need to do a fresh install using the windows 98 installation cd.
    get all the data you need off it first.
    im trying to find yo a windows 98 install guide.
    windows 98 is harder to install since you need to format the drive in dos first before installing windows 98.
    i cant seem to find a windows 98 install guide on the winsupersite odd.
