To All,

For a year or more, my computer will freeze. usually about a min or two after starting Win 98 SE for about 2 or 3 days staright and then for about the same length of time will work perfectly. I am always running the same programs. I've trried everything to find the cause but am unsuccessful. I eliminated all start ups, virus scanned, changed hardware accelerator or whatever that is called and any and everything to find the problem.

I have a PIII 733 MHz Via MB with 393MB ram with a 20 GB WD drive.

When I reboot, I usually have scan disk, in Dos, find lost cluster(s) on my Temp directory or my Win directory. I changed the temp directory to a different partition on my HD thinking that may be the problem. I have 5 partitions, c - g each about the same size.

If I just boot to DOS, I can use the computer all day without a freeze. Sometimes, in WIN, it will go about an hour and then freeze, but usually it will happen very quickly.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Len

Hi lybush

I see nothing in your startup that could be causing your problems

This could be a spyware\foistware\malware\adware problem

You may want to run spybot to get rid of any hidden spyware etc.

Please Download and install SpyBot,

http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/spybot14.exe

click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

you may have to run spybot more than once to clear everything

Remove everything pre-ticked in Red

Steam,

Thanks for your reply.

I have SpyBot and run it at least twice a week and as of now there are no more 'REDS'. Also, I just finished PC Pitstop and they say my system is fine with one yellow flag. Says I should run scandisk on all partitions, which I've done at least 6 times today as that is about how many times I have had to reboot.

I had AdAware or whatever it is called and removed it for Spybot last week. I also ran Norton AV in DOS through the entire HD and came up with nothing wrong. I also defrag often.
