XP will look after you far better than any previous opp system.

You will soon learn how to use it, it's fun anyway better than playing all those silly games, at least you are doing something constructive with your time then.

Run scandisk and defrag...

Press Ctrl - Alt - Delete and end task on all the programs except "systray" and "Explorer".

98, hmm ok let me see if i remember > Go to Start > Run > Type: SFC /scannow > Click "ok"...

Click "Start".

(from memory so i hope it is right)
