I have windows 98 2nd ed. My problem started after defragging. After I restarted my computer it still stayed in safe mode. I tried to fix it in customize my desktop under settings. That is when the problem started. I got the message that I need ed 256 colors 8-bit. I tried the 256 colors and restarted my computer. This was wrong so I tried all settings and finally settled on high color 16bit. Not perfect but colors are close but icons and text are too large. I know the answer must be simple but I don't know it. Please help.
