I think that the main reason my computer was having problems is because when I tried to restore my computer, I kept getting errors. So, I have decided to start from scratch, that is erase my harddrive and start over again. The only thing is that I don't want to go through the same thing again...my computer froze or would just restart. The thing is that I don't know if I was doing it right the first time. I have windows 98 SE installed, and Windows XP upgrade. So when I tried with the xp disc, it gave me a message stating that I would not be able to format the harddrive because I had a newer version installed (Service Pack 2 is installed). So I tried with the windows 98 disc and formatted it that way, but with errors. So can someone please help me or point me to the right direction with this, I'd really appreciate it.

Well, when I try to install software and it goes through the system folder, it can't install certain files, which makes the software not work right. I think that some of the files might have been corrupted during the installation of Windows 98.
