    I had to reinstall my Windows 98 Everything is now running smoothly on my computer. But I have some unwanted files I want out. It came with the install. It is the additional online services. I have an internet provider and don't need any other. I removed them when it was first installed years and years agobut for the life of me I can't remeber how to do it safely. Any help would be apprecaite it.... Thank You, Gayla

    What are the files ? If they are programs that have been installed, go to START > SETTINGS > CONTROL PANEL and scroll to "Add/Remove Programs" Sc roll down the list to find what you want to get rid of, Select it (click on it), then click the Add/Remove button.

    You can delete the Online Services folder with no problems. I do the same thing. It doesn't really take any hard drive space but I like to not see it also.

    Once you make a Windows reinstall, it will add folders, icons, and Start menu items that you don't need or want. It's part of the "cleaning up" process after the reinstall. Just make sure not to delete anything crucial. The Online Services folder can definitely go. It's outdated anyway.
