    I have Windows 98 on my computer, and it takes quite a bit of time to load everything on the desktop. Except in the past week, it's hasn't been working. What I mean is, when I turn the computer on it just goes to the desktop and shows nothing on the screen but the wallpaper...I don't understand why? Can someone help me fix this or tell me what the problem is? Thanks...

    Try booting into safe mode, running msconfig, and unchecking everything on the startup tab. Reboot and see if it works. If it does, one of the things you unchecked was causing the problem.

    If that doesn't work, you can try booting to a DOS prompt and running "scanreg /restore". Pick the most recent registry you can, but before the problem started.
