OK, so now not only is my browser still
I may have to do something a bit more drastic, as I think something's latched onto my PC...I try to run Start>Find in an attempt to locate random files and nothing opens up to the right except a little flicker of a few pixels in the corner of the Find box. I've used NAV, AdAware and Search and Destroy, and it still does it.
FWIW, these files I'm looking for are certain programs I've never personally downloaded that start running in the background upon startup (I see them only in the Ctrl+Alt+Del task manager).
So I'm probably going to reinstall W98--It's just not financially possible to get another OS right now, w/baby on the way--as a bit of damage control. You said, Cap'n, in a PM that I could do that w/out losing my data...so, would that mean I just put the CD for W98 in the CD-ROM and reinstall without having to do a backup CD of My Documents et al?
