When I select "Add New Hardware" from Control Panel my computer locks up on the second screen.  I've reloaded Wiondows '98 several times and this has not solved the problem.

Can you boot in SAFE MODE and check control panel to see if any errors are reflected and advise?  If any duplicates or errors, remove them, reboot.  What are you trying to add?

Was your Windows 98 installation a new install or upgrade, if upgrade, from what version?  Defining your computer type, bios, RAM, storage, motherboard, etc. would be most helpful.
