Recently I was going through my Add/Remove window and I saw a couple items in there that I had already deleted (or so I thought)...so I tried to delete the item and when the uninstall program started it was going to uninstall a completely different program...one that I wanted to keep.......this has happened a couple times. It leads to believe my registry is kinda messed up. I did a registry check and it said "No Errors were Found". I have done a thourough disk scan and all that good stuff. My question is...if I reinstall Windows ME will it fix that problem ?? And in doing so, will it also get rid of my existing programs or will it just correct the problems in Windows ??

The last time I re-installed win98, there was an option allowing you to re-install without touching your other files, if I remember correctly. If you have some very important files though, I'd make a backup of them to make sure.

If you have TweakUI intslled on your system, I would have a look in there first. Click on the "Repair" tab and then select the "Repair Registry" option. If that doesn't work, you should try you're re-install.
