Hi Tech Guy, My Windows98 second ed is giving me problems, slow, freezing up for no reason I can figure out. Also shuts down pretty much whenever it feels like it. Is there a scan that I can use? Tried to use a couple that advertise on your site but one would not load and the other I abandoned when they finally told me it was not free but $30.00. Id like to get that junk out too. sorry I am a computer illiterate. Jamaica Jim

Hi Tech Guy, Have not heard anything from you. Now have a new wrinkle. I can't run my "scan disc" because it keeps informing me that another program is writing to the disc. As far as I can tell I've got everything else shut down and I have restarted the computer several times. Scan disc ran fine until recently. I added a new printer and a couple of scan programs that I downloaded from vendors that advertise on your site. None of them are being used by me as far as I know I suppose I may have sabotaged myself by replying to my own post since you check those posts that have not yet been answered.
Hope to hear from you. Jamaica Jim
