My computer froze up after a defrag. The when I tried to reboot, it went through the normal process until my wallpaper was visible. At this point, usually, my icons appear and off I go. Now, a small title bar with "Explorer" blinks for a fraction of a second and then nothing else happens. I have tried commercial rescue disks that lead me to an A:/ prompt and stop. I have tried to reinstall win98 over top of my existing OS(win98) and it remains the same. I can get into an edit files mode on my hard drive using Norton rescue but once there I don't have any idea what to do to any files.
Thanks for any help, Brian
