Before you re-install, try the repair function off of the win200disc. Are you protected as far as anti-virus and malware goes??

Try hitting ctrl-shift-esc and starting 'explorer.exe' (no quotes, from File-New Task).

Also, try booting into safe mode (Tap F8 at startup) and run Virus/spyware scans from there.

Make sure that the Remote Procedure Call service is activated (In safe mode)...I've heard of that causing similar problems. (Control Panel->Admin tools->services)

The only way I know of to get rid of 98 is to reformat and reinstall. Malware is just short for malicious software, (viruses, spyware, adware). There should be a repair utility on your installation disc.
