    Win 98se backup (by seagate) no longer allows me to exclude files. Even after reformatting HD and reloading win 98, this feature no longer works. When I open the "exclude" tab to set up parameters I get an error message "illegal operation, will be shut down" Backup used to allow exclusions but not any more. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    You either have a corrupt file or a missing file for the progrram. I would run a virus program to check for viruses, a trojan program and also check for ad-ware.

    These sites will do the above free.

    Ad-Ware Checks and removes spyware

    MooSoft 30 day evaluation program for trojans

    PC Pitstop antivirus program Must have IE Explorer 4.0 will not work with Netscape.

    PC Cillion

    After you do the above uninstall the program, reboot and then reinstall it so you have all good files and you know that none will be missing.

    It should work as it was designed to.
