I installed WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS onto my new computer with Windows 98. Now I know it was a dumb idea.

Ever since doing so I have been having problems. When I boot up it often goes to ScanDisk, saying I didn't shut down properly. even when I did shut down properly.

Some changes were made to my registry, so maybe that is the problem?

I tried to restore an older registry version but it wouldn't accept the changes. It was a few days ago and now I no longer have old copies of the registry. I don't know anything about registries and autoexec stuff.

I have run all the Norton Disk Doctor applications with no improvement.

How can I get rid of WP5.1 completely?

I have been using WordPerfect 5.1 and also 6 on Win98SE machines. There's no problem whatsoever.

One thing is for sure. WordPerfect 5.1 being a DOS based program, doesn't even touch the registry. The ScanDisk at startup and other Windows problem has nothing to do with installation of WordPerfect. There must be something else and there can be 100 other reasons. So you can post a new thread for that with specific indications and trigger-point of your problem.

However, if you still wish to remove WordPerfect 5.1, just plainly delete the folder in which you have installed it. I assume here that you have installed WordPerfect 5.1 in a separate folder. If not, it will be a herculian task to delete each and every file of WordPerfect separately. It is also very likely that you will delete some file that you should not delete. :rolleyes:
