When your computer is just starting keep tapping the F8 key, you will then be shown a menu. Select SAFE MODE to start the computer in SAFE MODE. You can defag from safe mode.

Try this click here It's free and is a far better defragging tool than Windows. It will complete in a fraction of the time. This link has been offered umpteen times on this site, and I have never yet seen a bad report about it.

thank you for the response to my defrag problem, but when i enter safe mode and try to defrag it still shuts the computer down. Did windows 98 have some kind of security thing that has to be turned back on or something?? please help if possible.

Why not try Diskeeper Lite like I suggested, If you do a search of posting, you will find no end of postings singing it's praises, and it's free.
