Utilities Tools Win-98SE

By bestcreations ·
Please Need good advice.

I install Win-2000 as a separate OS my primary Os is Win-98 SE . However, when I tried to run my Scandisk and Defragment tools the system operating Win-98 was not running properly it keep skipping from 0% to 1-2% on the C: drive and back to 0%. I ended deleting my Win-2000 and leaving only 98 but, I haven't been able to fix this bug...
If I install Win-98 again would that delete every thing in my HD ??? Pls, Reply.
Also, I'm planning to overclock my BUS chip(Celeron 66MHZ-64RAM)or should i first upgrade the RAM is this a good idea? recommendation?...thank you.

Sometimes, it takes time for defrag and scandisk to finish scanning. But since you've installed and uninstalled win2k over win98 and the problem still persist, the best solution is, back-up your files, format your drive (fdisk and format) and re-install windows 98. There might be some files and registry entries that were not removed when you uninstalled win2k, this may cause you problems.
Over-clocking becomes an advantage only when you do it properly, If not it can cause serious problemto your processor. I think theres an article posted here in techrepublic about over-clocking, you might check that first before you proceed with over-clocking.

The first question regarding your scandisk and win2000. On a system with win98, if you install win2k you will have no problem with the registry for win98 if you uninstall 2000, becuase one is seperate from the other, they will never mix their registry settings with each other. So the answer to question #2 is that you will NOT lose your data if you reinstall win98, I would however reinstall from the command prompt. Question #3, I dont really understand your overclocking method, the items you canincrease (overclock) on a system are your clock multipliers and voltages to your CPU, the Ram has no bearing on the choice. As far as celeron go for overclocking they are already a weakened version of a Pentium chip, I wouldnt recommend overclockinga Celeron. There is also some of the best advice for overclocking at www.tomshardware.com you can find many items relating to this very thing. I wish you luck

I understand what he's saying about overclocking - he wants to keep the same multiplier, but raise his bus rate from 66 to 100. BAD IDEA - this usually doesn't work as Intel has locked the processor in such a way that it won't work if you attempt it. The only Processor that I know works with both the 66 and 100 is the Celeron 300a

you could also start in safe mode and try running those tools again. form 1-10% is very slow, this is when the os looks at all of the files and trys to place them for speed on the hdd. if you have alot of back ground apps running these tools will somethimes give you trouble. so safe mode is good to fix that. good luck, mark ps, hit f5 when booting to get into safe mode
