When I try to remove old programs that I no longer use, the add/remove program always freezes the comp [Windows 98] up. I've tried to find a new add/remove to see if that helps but I havent had any luck. I dont even know if that would help the case at all. Any ideas? TIA!

The first thing to do when removing a program in 98 is to look for an uninstaller. Go to Start -> Programs, find the program you want to uninstall, then see if there is an uninstaller listed with other choices. Also, when removing a program, it is best to make sure it isn't running in the background while attempting to uninstall. Most of the aftermarket uninstaller programs cost money, and some only work with a particular operating system. Here are some of the programs.
