Background: My computer is acting wierd. First, memory test fails at start-up which I thought was due to a bad CMOS. I replaced and no go. Second, I receive many illegal operation (close) errors and I thought by reinstalling win 98 it would clean the hdd and get rid of all the bad dll's. After uninstalling win 98 I then reinstalled win 98. Installation went fine, win 98 copied all the files correctly. After installation, nothing was clean. All my files, directories, everything was still there.
1. How can I reinstall win 98 and have it clean my hard drive?
2. At start-up I receive a memory test fail and I have to press f1 to continue. What do you think the problem is? (I replaced the CMOS, that is not the problem)
