XP running within Win 98 ?

  dkuk2000 18:24 20 Oct 2004

Hope somebody can shed some light on this.
A guy i work with has been having problems with programmes hanging and shutting down his pc.
He tried scandisk and even a reinstall of windows 98 both failed.
Yesterday he decided to question his other half and she revealed that she had installed XP.
This is where it gets confusing for me,when the pc boots up you get the win 98 screen then it goes straight to desktop but when you go to "my documents" the window looks like XP.
When you attempt to shut down the system hangs.
Sorry if this lacks detail but his other half is 100% certain in her eyes that she only installed XP and doesn't remember how she did it apart from putting the disk in.
Any suggestions

Strange one that... I never heard of one going into the other.

Why not format and reinstall Win98?

That's what i told him but he insists that he'd rather have it corrected than format (fool).

Well, maybe the system file checker will work




and click start.
