    FOR YEARS and YEARS i NEVER had to format my comp..

    Then a bad virus hit and I used system Restore on my horrid compq, ever since It has gotten virus after virus and my virus "protection program" aint worth crap...

    Now i recently got a new motherboard (compq's burned out)
    I had no system restore...

    So I had to install 98 wich is almost impossible to do when your alreaddy running ME...

    I pulled out some dos skillz i didnt know I had... I used deltree to wipe out as much as possible (it got rid of enough to install 98). 98 then would not run right cause it was out over the existing files... so I restarted is dos mode and used
    FORMAT /AUTOTEST c:

    after my hard drive was wiped I installed win98 problem free..

    What is C++?
