    Default Need diagnostic/repair program for Win98SE

    Hi,

    Resurrecting an older computer. It works ok, but getting a locked up browser once in a while, and a few windows errors on startup. Can anyone recommend a decent (preferably free) program to diagnose and repair Win98SE? Thanks. Ed.

    Default How about...

    Not sure if you've already thought of this, but just perhaps reinstalling Win98 might help solve the problems. You may not have to reinstall from scratch, and I can't remember, but you may be able just to reinstall over top of your current installation. I don't recall if Win9x had a diagnostics utility on the startup CD.
