After uninstalling FirstAid98, my system only sees 14 meg of ram. It has slowed down considerably. How do I reset it to see all 16 meg? I tried letting Windows "find new hardware"  but with no success. Thanks

Please do the following:
1) Start > Run > type in "SYSEDIT" without quotes
2) Select the autoexec.bat file
3) type in a REM at the begining of the line where it say SMARTDRV
4) Save the file
5) Restart the system

Did it solve your problem??

Thanks, although the line "rem" was a little unclear. Type it where? Before the words "SMARTDRV"  or before the entire line that begins withC/:Windows/system....ect....SMARTDRV?
   I was unsure so I just backspaced past SMARTDRV and it workd, although my system hangs for a little while during startup. At least its working. Let me know if you can how to exactly remove that line, or weather I should even try.

the line would read like this:
REM C/:Windows/system....ect....
That's all.  Now let me know if your system does that "hangs" as you said.
