I need to free up room. This is a Gateway and although it came with a HelpSpot CD, "HelpSpot" is also installed -- 34.6 MGs of it. It's not listed in Add/Remove. I know you're not supposed to just rt-click and delete but...
Anybody know how to get rid of it?

Hi have not used 98 in a while ,but you need to rename the registry key. Then you can remove it thru Add/remove..
See this MSFT Article to rename it.
