I have tried everything I know, including some things I read about in the postings on this website. I have re-installed Windows 98 several times. I have gone to the DOS prompt and fixed the registry. I have chosen not to load any/some of the config.sys, system.ini, Autoexec.bat, Win.ini, and Startup. I have changed the settings in the System Configuration Utility under Advanced. I have run Norton AntiVirus, checked for spyware with my spyware program, and ran Scandisk and Defrag. I have used System File Checker. I have used the startup menu in DOS (each of the steps listed I've tried). I do have a couple of devices in Device Manager that have the yellow question marks, but they only appeared after I reinstalled Windows 98 SE. They weren't there before when the computer first started freezing up, so I don't feel they are the issue. I can think of no other options to try. I need a miracle! Please help!
