Is it better to reinstall win98se, format or fdisk? I am just getting rid of ghosts etc(reg. and win. cleaners don't completely clean).
Newish machine all good.

Cheers

I would prefer a format. Re-installing doesn't replace files if they already exist so it will not always resolve a problem. There are a lot of junk files left-over however it will function but leaves a bit of a mess.
