Re-installing 98SE

Can I re-instal 98SE using the C.D. without re-formatting the HDD? I just want to make sure there are no program faults causing increasing "freezing".I have run Scandisc quite often but the problem persists.

I keep my 98se below 1.5Gb


You could try 98se over the top. turn of Anti-virus and install Win98 cd and run setup

Hi all. Thanks for your advices. I take it that SFC wiil rectify any discrepancies. I have already removed several unnecessary programs, doesn't seem to make a lot of difference. OS is on a 4.1 Gb C drive with 3.25 used. Also have a 40Gb drive for photos etc.

It's too many programs that cause the problems

woodchip and johnsims - thanks. I'll try transferring some files to the other Hard Drive.
VoG - I've run SFC,accepted the alterations required from the CD and then run the MS Security CD. Seems much better, (fingers crossed).
