Before you do anything, would you like to explain why you are trying to reinstal Win 98. Also is that Win 98 or Win 9se?

Win 9se = Win 98 second edition

Why not get rid of all the junk files etc, first?

If Windows XP is running Ok but slower than when you first had the laptop then getting rid of all the junk would be a first starting point. Also what version of XP is it, Pro or Home?
