try posting this in a forum more suited for the topic, like 'windows xp/2000' or 'windows 98'. you might get help much quicker there.

Hi

how about providing us more information about the issue.

Also you may try doing "Disk cleanup" to release some space from your system drive. Defragment after that.

here are a couple of tips before deleting anything:

look in the recycle bin for anything you may have accidently deleted previously. save it to cd or zip disk. then empty the recycle bin. check your free disk space.

before deleting anything - make a backup copy. it's easy to delete folders that look unnecessary.

delete in small chunks.

here's the sequence:
make a backup to cd(not to the hard drive)
delete
empty the recycle bin
check free space
repeat

don't get greedy - stop when there is a moderate amount of free space. it can be difficult to recover if the wrong folder is accidently deleted.
