He may need to run it in Safe Mode. The instructions can be found BC's tutorial on Safe Mode . It would help, if he had the screen saver disabled as well.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

When in Safe Mode, it would be a good idea to run Scandisk and let it repair any errors it finds prior to running defrag; the latter may take some time if it has not been run recently.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I am also running WIN98 (my mother's PC). When I try to run scandisk it tells me it can't fix errors in FAT. What can I do to fix the errors and run defrag?

Happy Holidays,
Be Strong And Courageous!
