Can't start anything, can't finish anything either

When my Windows 98SE boots up I can't access the DVD-ROM drive, unless I use an automated add-on, like Sesame. Then the fun starts, beacause nothing loads and displays. I've tried setting the Hard Disk Controller to dual IDE or Default mode, but it makes no difference. When I try and restart, MSGSRV32 does not respond, followed by everything else. I finally pull the plug in desperation. I've tried to download the 98SE shutdown supplement, but get the message "Run Time error, do you wish to debug". No matter how many times I press NO, the damn box keeps popping up, so I can't download the supplement. Aaaaagh!

A reinstall might be your best bet at the worst, but try a defrag or something.
