My father-in-law has two Windows folders on his Win98 computer (IE 5.5). One is named windows and the other Win98. Both are in C:\ He added Win98 after Windows crashed. That restored Windows functionality.
Now there are 442 objects and 34.6 MB in Windows and 381 objects and 110 MB in C:\Win98. Win98 is driving his system, but there are many duplicate files shared by the
two folders - 5340 to be exact.
As an experiment should I put Windows in the Recycle Bin and see whether Win98 is still able to keep things moving or do you suggest I do some additional diagnostic testing?
If so, what do you recommend?
