System clock, cursor every thing runs fast

Friends,

I have this problem in my windows 98 operating system. I am using AMD Athlon 1800 XP, 128 MB RAM. Now to describe the problem is like this. When the system is on for some time or at the start up itself sometimes, the system clock, the cursors in all the programs like Editors, Browsers, everything runs fast. Even the flash files in Browser get go crazy speed. What might be wrong.

Thanks in advance,
best regards,

Tojiv,

Usually the complaint is that everything runs too SLOW. :) Does the running fast last for long, or only a temporary thing?

Have you check if any files are corrupted? From the desktop, type Start > Run and type SFC. Click OK.

Have you check if the registry is corrupted? If the problem has been going on for less than 5 days, at the Run box type scanreg /restore and click OK. If the problem has been going on for more than 5 days, type scanreg /fix and click OK.

Have you done a scandisk and defrag on the hard disk?

Best wishes, war1

Thank you war1 for your comments and valuable suggestios,

I just tried the "sfc" command. Some dll files shown "may be corrupt". These files may be altered when installing some programs. Any way I replaced with the WIN98SE files. I am not trying for now scanreg/restore as will see if the earlier thing works. scandisk and defrag I have tried earlier. As there is no specific time to this problem to appear. I will return to you if this happens again.
Ya I know the problem is running too slow usually arises and that is a know bug in Win 98 OS.

Thanking you,

Bye for now

Make sure there is a space between scareg and /restore

Hi war1,

Sorry I was busy installing and configuring Red Hat Linux on the hard disk.
That problem still came it still was speeding up I tried all your solutions.
Now the problem is not coming as I have fully formatted my hard disk to create more partitions for linux installation. Now speeding up is not happening.
I am sorry but can't accept your answer. Pardon me as if I did it may lead many others to mislead. Now if it reappears again I may do that.
Thanking you for your valuable comments.
