Here is the problem, sometimes, not all the time, when I am in MS Works, even when I am using AOL, it sounds like my hard drive slows down? Some times a couple of times, some times quite a few times, occasionly, fatal error messages show up, like the system has become unstable, then the ususal garbage of press any key to restart, etc, etc,. Is my hard drive about to take a dump, or do I have internal software problems. I have removed some game programs, installed an Uninstaller program that cleaned out 57,114,000 bytes of infor, lots of crap left over from deletes, WWW stuff, could not belief the amount, I have done surface scans of the hard drive, defraged the system almost weekly. Do you this might be a problem of a floppy that I use when I do my work letters. Seems like this drive prob lem started about the same time.
