windows 98 se fails to load

  pbtime 10:27 08 Oct 2003

I have had a pc for the last 3.5 years and not had many problems but for the last week my pc will not load first time it takes 3-4 times of restarting to get it to run ok.

The message that sometimes comes up is p2 networking not responding other times it freezes with 2 or 3 items to install , also i cannot run scan disk or disk fragmenter.

I have ran norton anti virus and checked for any funny items that may have being downloaded .

any ideas anyone

thanks in advance

If you can boot into safemode (Ctrl on mine) and run scandisk and defrag. May be worth running system file checker too, RUN/ type sfc and replace any corrupt files from os disc.

p2 networking = P2P Networking

Got KaZaa (or equivalent) installed? That'll most likely be the problem.
