Dying Hard Drive?

Just a quick update: I told my client today that the AOL 9.0
installation had probably trashed Windows, and that I planned to
reinstall everything from Gateway's restore disks, as well as replace
the CMOS battery. After discussing it with her, she decided to junk the
system and buy a new one -- She's going for a Dell with WinXP.

Thanks everyone for your input.

That old machine is a perfectly good web browsing/email machine...just what
the kids need. Restore it anyway, and load all the necessary adware/spyware
tools, and let 'em loose.

(tell her to load those tools on the new machine before doing ANYTHING
