:tazz: On your download page, Sandra is listed as compatible with win98SE. After downloading, I was unable to execute file. Got msg "corrupt files download new copy". Did this a few times with no luck. Went to Sandra's home page and saw requirements are win2000 or later. Does anyone have an url where I can get a copy for win98se?? Thanks

Sandra looks like a good overall diagnostic tool to keep tabs on an old PC like mine. I periodically have problems with bootup, shutdown and slowdowns and I thought Sandra might help. Just looking for a good recommended FREE tool.
Thanks

Everest will give you some benchmark information

If you click + next to computer then summary, on the right will be a list of hardware, then you can look for updates, software or firmware

Post back if it does not have what you need

Download and install Everest Home Edition

If you are unable to find a particular piece of software / firmware or a driver, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything

For 98SE you can also do this to check the registry and file system is correct

This will rebuild rather than restore the registry and also replace missing or corrupt system files

Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 right after the beep until you get options, select command prompt only, type scanreg.exe /fix then press enter, it will run through a few screens then say registry repaired. Press enter then press ctrl + alt + delete keys together to reboot.

When it has loaded, click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools then run system file checker and replace any files it asks for from the 98SE CD then reboot.

When it has loaded to the desktop, click start, programmes accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then run disc defragmenter from system tools
