I have Windows 98 Second Edition!
Unfortunetly, the task manager is not located on the taskbar on Windows 98 Second Edition. Instead, it can be accessed by tapping "CTRL+ALT+DEL" once, very quickly of course. This old task manager doesn't have an application tab. Everything is all bunched up together.
End all the processes. Apart from "explorer" and "systray". These are your important programs. Make sure you don't have any documents, games, or programs running.
Perform the Scandisk scan.
Finally, defragment your hard drive.
Your computer may be affected by spyware. In short, these are undesirable programs that run in the background without your permission. If you want to, you can use a program to delete the unwanted spyware.
Don't worry. I don't think you've got any spyware. I think you've just installed too many programs on your hard drive.
Sometimes, it feels as though my life is just a never-ending circle of pain and misery. Not to mention sadness, worthlessness, and humiliation. But I can only cry inside. Deep behind my happy smile and bright personality is a sad and lonely person, a mere figment of my former self. Someday, all this pain will be over. I will drop down and die. At other times I ask myself, \"If only this would happen right now\".
