Since I updated Win95 with Win98, the PC's clock doesn't work properly anymore.  It seems as the clock runs "slower". In order to solve the problem, I totally reinstalled Win98 on a blank system.  The clock problem remains.  How to fix this?

Time is mantained by the computer not windows 98. Consider replacing the battery on the MotherBoard.
If you mean that when are in DOS then the clock works fine then this is
not the solution. i.e., press control when the computer starts up and don't leave it till a menu appears.
Choose command prompt only. Now monitor the clock. You can see the time my giving the command time at the dos prompt.
If the problem remains either there is a problem with the time controller on the Motherboard or the battery is weak.
In latter case you may be able to replace the battery yourself, however you cannot replace the time controller yourself.
