    I am having problems with ME and not to happy with it. I would like to go to Win98se. How do I go backwards to install 98se on my PC?

    Hi and welcome......

    It's going to be called format c: and a complete reinstall. Is there anything on the hard drive that you need to save?

    What could be so terrible that you would go back to 98SE?

    Windows ME, aside from the handy RESTORE feature, is
    essentially a tricked out Windows 98SE with a snazzy paint
    job.

    Read the guides, ask for assistance, and learn your
    operating system.

    Email from poster (it'll be easier if you'll reply back to the thread, as I may be away, and there are others who can help as well)


    This is the message:

    I don't have anything really that important. I would like to figure out how to do this. Can I use partition magic?


    ********

    I am not familiar with that software (well, I know of it, but I've never used it), so be patient and someone who is will respond........

    Since I am in the technical support field ME is the worst version out there. Many problems with it. Since I would be going back to 98se, what steps do I need to take to allow this to convert smoothly? I am not concerned about files at this point


    ***************
    Have a look at this link, it should pretty much explain the steps, if you have any questions, please post back.
