Whenever I try to defrag I get an error telling me there is not enough ram.
I have 1meg of ram.

What gives?

Windows 98 has problems with large amounts of ram. Try one (or both) of these 2 suggestions to start with to see if they help :

1. Run sysedit. Open the system.ini file and add this line under the [VCACHE] section :
MaxFileCache=524288
save & reboot

OR

2. Reboot in safe mode, then try defrag again

Neither of these worked.
Any more ideas?

I'm wondering if it would work by removing ram.
I'll try that tonight.

Also, how do you remove some of the icons on the right hand side of the task bar? They start automatically at boot.

To remove programs from startup:

start>run>msconfig>startup tab. Uncheck everything in there that you don't need.
