It sounds like you have several corrupt sectors on your hard drive. Run scandisk (chkdsk) and see if it finds anything. There maybe some 3rd party tools you can use to check the drive integrity as well.

hello, evrybody

yes. it may be of bad sector. becos when i tried to reinstall windows98 again, it says some files and directory entries are corrupted and their size is wrong. so after a series of scandisk checks and after reoving many folders and files , only it allowed me to reinstall wndows98. one more thing is that when i reinstalled win98, now my windows 2000 server also started working perfectly. :shock: . whats happening????? i dont understand.

any way thanks for all replys. but i wish , to hear what exactly is the problem

hi sreeraj......
ur pblm sounds as ur comp is effected with virus... so dont repare win98 once again and try runnin anti virus. or instead of reinttallin first copy msdos.sys and hymem.sys to their location frm ur backup... so that u can save ur time in reinstalling.
or else try formatin the drive in which u vae th os and install th fresh copy of os... this will help u out.
