I have a peculiar prob. I have a p4 1.7GHz 384MB ram PC with win xp nd win98 running in 2 partitions. Recently i'm facing the following probs in my win 98: 1. when i rt. clk in any link in my IE6 window and select open in new window - it fail to opn. A blank window appears but address bar remain blank.- same thing happens with digit dvd/cd - when i click the view/install button - a blank window opens only but nothing happens. 2. adobe reader 5 was running fine. when i try to install adobe reader 6 - it does not install.- now I dont have adobe at all. 3.RealOne player was running fine - when I downloaded Realplayer10 and tried to install it - it first shows - uninstall component missing-old version can not be deleted. Add remove programme says the same thing about real player. when I manually deleted the folders and tried to install the new versions - it copies all files- places a desktop icon- but on clking the desktop icon noting happens . so now i dont have real player too. It seems the problem started after I installed and then removed some software - i forgot whichone. can any body help pl.
