Big icons can be made smaller in the properties of the desktop, but that doesn't explain the other problems.
So I suggest to go back in time a few days with the registry, to see what that does.
Boot, and when the message Starting Windows 98 ... appears keep ctrl-key pressed or repeatedly press f8 (once a second). From the boot menu choose to boot in MS-DOS. Then type scanreg /restore (end with enter) and choose a date when everything still was OK (max 5 days ago).
Post your findings. And please explain 'freezing'.
I am having problems with Windows 98 SE, when i turned it on the other day it is loading up the desktop with big icons and the mouse cursor is not visible. It just keeps freezing.
Does anyone have any ideas how I could fix this?
