    Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? I took off some of the accessories that came with my Windows 98- (using the add and delete programs part of the control panel) - I am running VERY low on memory, and I didn't realize that if you take off some of those accessories, you are supposed to have the disc to replace them with. I had this computer upgraded by a business that now has a telephone out of order.... no disc......
    Any ideas as to what to do to be able to put the accessories back on- like games (solitaire.... etc) and so on?
    Is there a place on the web to redownload some of that stuff?

    Uninstalling programs like those accessories frees up hard drive space, not memory.

    some of those games you are talking about (like solitar games and skifree) can be found on the internet... by just searching for the name of the game and such...

    Take a look at the hardrive and see if they copied the W98CD to the drive. Do this,

    Start>Find>Files, key in win98*.cab and press enter. Were any found?
