Is there a free software programme to clean up the HD?there seems to be traces of an old programme on my pc.When opening a new programme sometimes I get shaddows or shaded parts on the screen.I am running windows 95.I was wondering if it could be caused by part of a programme that has been ininstalled.what do you think...Thanks.

Hi, that just sounds like your computer freezing, doubt its related to a prog you installed. try norton utils to cleanup.

It might help to do a defrag of your disk. Start up in DOS (press F8 straight after it says 'Loading Windows 95', and select dos.
Then 'scandisk', then 'defrag'. Also 'del \*.chk' might be a good idea.

If you still seem to have other problems, you can reinstall Windows without losing anything. If you have a directory 'C:\win95' with a lot of '.CAB' files, in DOS do 'cd \WIN95', 'setup' will start it. Otherwise you will need to use the CD.
