Your dog is smart enough to let you know when he’s sick.
Shouldn’t your computer be smarter than your dog?

Microsoft® Windows® 98 will scan your hard drive for problems, fix them, then go through and clean out any unwanted files. It will also defrag your hard drive (which not only saves you disk space but also sounds very cool) and basically do a bunch of preventative-medicine kind of things. This would be like your dog suddenly deciding to cut down on table scraps and take longer walks. Good dog. Better operating system.

Works better. Plays better.
