    This one is for one of my friends

    When windows 98 is booted there are about 30 of every icons you can delete them but each time you turn the computer on they come back

    He does not have recovery disk is there another way to fix this hope it is easy

    Thanks Steve

    After your friend deletes the icons, have him/her reboot. That should hold the change.

    If they just shut down and then boot up again, things usually go back the way they were.
