Bad sectors in the harddrive


I have recently cleared a load of junk off my hard drive as it was becoming full. Since then my PC has become slow & I am unable to Write a CD has the system seems too slow. After trying to burn a CD with Nero 5.5 occasionally after rebooting it tells me that I may have bad sectors on my hardrive & proceeds with a Sacdisk in Dos. The Scandisk does not find any bad sectors & I have run a defrag, I have also uninstalled & reinstalled Nero. Any ideas.

Ok if your system is running slow you may want to try doing a disk clean up clear up all the temperary files that can speed somthing up About your bad sectors you may try reformating your hard drive what that would do is delete everything on your hard drive you could do that using the MS DOS program To get there all you haver to do is restart your computer in with ms dos you can do that easily with your win 98 Once your computer has restarted with ms dos

type down this command : C:

then you type : format or format drive:c

the C stands for the harddrive remember that

worse comes to worse you can always just upgrade to a bigger hard drive which wouldn't be a bad idea but try this out for now.
