I formatted the hard drive and reinstalled Windows 98 SE. And
I reinstalled and updated drivers.
I updated Windows 98 from the Microsoft web site.
I reinstalled Spy-Bot and Ad-Aware.
Finally I reinstalled my AV: McAfee Virus Scan Pro, 7.0 with Guardian (Firewall). After install, I updated the McAfee s/w.
My system runs but is very sluggish and gets more sluggish after it remains on for a while.
Restarting helps, but often when I restart, my desktop dims and windows stops, locks up.
If I use Task Manager at that point, the Task Manager opens and says "Program Not Responding" but does NOT identify the program.
Usually Task Manager will close the unknown program and the system will continue shut down and restart.
