PC Freezes before file erased 100%


New Member
PC running Windows 98 2nd.
Eraser showes the required number of passes completed on the responce screen but the system freezes before the total line fills to 100% on the files selected to erase.
This does not allow me to do anything except Crtl, Alt, Delete which showes PSFree (Not Responding) and the system must be restarted.
This condition started when I upgraded from 5.5 to 5.7.
Any Suggestioins.
