Hello!
I'm seriously frustrated with my computer problems, so I've come back here once again because someone always seems able to assist me with my difficulties. :)

Basically, for a while now, I have been getting a lot of the blue screen errors at different times when using my computer. Sometimes it happens if I open Mozilla and then my husband comes along and tries to use IE. Or... if my husband opens his filesharing program to listen to music (I know... bad bad) and then tries to open Mozilla, etc. Also... opening control panel now causes graphical glitches and major system lag. Sometimes even a complete freeze. We have run AdAware, Spybot and we have AVG installed for antivirus. The computer's performance has just been rotten lately all around. Any advice would be very welcome! I'm attaching my Hijack This log to see if anyone spots anything that could be causing the problems, as well as part of my dxdiag log. Sorry this will make the post so long. :eek:

Thanks so much in advance. Please let me know if there is any other info required.

I'll attempt to do that. Thanks :) Could this be part of the problems I'm experiencing?

Well those are just spyware entries, blue screens might have been caused by conflicts with drivers and stuff. Since you are still running Windows 98, try running system file checker by clicking on Start>Run>type in "sfc" . Run the scan, get your Windows 98 installation disk just in case you run into errors and need to repair them.

Hi kelticvixen :)
I notice you have the Mircosoft Update:
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [KB891711] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\KB891711\KB891711.EXE
It seems lotsa people have problems with it, myself included!
You can disable it at start up, or remove it totally from add/remove programs.
There is a sticky post in this forum that you might want to have a read of.

Good luck

Hi again kelticvixen :)
I was having lots of BSOD and freezing.
When I pressed CTL + ALT + DELETE I saw KB891711 and searched around for info on it and found this fantastic site.
I uninstalled it and things got a little better.
With lotsa help from Rollin' Rog (a member here) we worked out that Zone Alarm and Norton were clashing and I've since uninstalled ZA.
All BSOD and freezes have stoped.

I have tried d/ling the supposedly "fixed" KB891711 update a week ago and almost immediatley started having troubles again. :rolleyes:

I'm quite happy leaving that one off my computer!!
