    I have Windows 98, Pentium 1 - 233, all installed by a friend. He didn't give me any discs. It worked fine until I installed AOL. Then it slowed down, giving me many error messages. "Cannot find web page", "Web pages doesn't exist", etc. another friend used it last week, I went to defrag the computer, got the message, "Cannot continue defragging, because it has too many errors. Go to "Help", and follow the directions to clear the errors.
    I went to Start, Help but got another message that the file was empty.

    Run Scan Disc before Defrag.
