We have had problems with this computer since we got it but recently it decided to revert back to Windows 98. Mind you all the programs for Vista work but it looks like an old computer. Also a window has just popped up that says Windows Explorer is not responding and that windows is checking for a problem. What in the world could possibly fix this "thing"?
