Hello everyone, i would really like some help as I am officially worried and don't know what to do. My computer got stuck on the loading screen, BTW i have Win98 266mhz and 128 RAM. What i wanted to do was a customary reformat and not even bother because i have nothing of importance on the computer BUT when i go to DOS to type in ( format c: ) it tells me "Bad command or file name" I did this while i was in c: and while i was in a: and it didn't help me at all. Also right above the the prompt are some strange symbols kind of like when you open a program with notepad and you get all these funky characters so im thinking maybe i got a virus since it was about a week ago i uninstalled my antivirus. Anyway thanks allot in advance for any guidance you may provide as i am lost.
