I have been having problems with booting up Windows 98SE recently and have been checking everything for cause. I just downloaded Highjackthis and need someone to advise me if there's something I need to do, even if not related to my startup problems. Thanks.

Judy:

AOL and McAfee place several items your computer's startup list, which increases startup time and increases the use of system resources, but unfortunately most of them probably need to run in the background.

I don't see any entries in the startup list that are suspicious or harmful, but your log shows a problem with about:blank that needs to be dealt with. Read here.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Open the C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files folder and check the list of activeX controls. You may have to click View - Details to see everything. If any of them are marked as "Damaged" or "Unknown", delete them.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Run another scan with HijackThis and fix the following:

Thanks for the heads-up on the about blank situation. I believe I took care of all of the above, although I didn't find any hidden file going through the steps outlined on the about blank problem. I did do a reset of home page and rebooted to the following new log. How does it look? Thanks again for your help.

Double-click My Computer, then click View - Folder Options - View(tab). Select "Show all files" and uncheck "Hide extensions of known file types". Click "Like current folder", then click Apply - OK.

Doing this will allow hidden files and all file extensions to be seen.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Like I said before, McAfee, AOL, and Compaq place a lot of entries in the startup list, so you pretty much have to live with them. I don't really see anything else that needs to be unchecked and disabled.

The O17 entry at the bottom of the log possibly needs to be deleted, but I'm not positive about it, so don't do it. Let's see if someone else advises differently.

I have continued to search for additional information on the safety of my keeping the 017 entry that suddenly showed up in my HJT log 'after' I got rid of about:blank but I can't find any reference to it except it's where highjack domains show up. I use AOL but don't know if the aoldsl.net in 017 entry is related to that program. Can anyone shed more light on this for me? Thanks.

You are using dsl for your connection right? And u said u have aol, so it is legit

Get these

SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
AdAware SE 1.05 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates
and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
SpyBot - After an update run immunize

Have you defraged recently after cleaning temp files and temp ie files

Thanks for the fast reply. No, I don't have dsl. But I've always used AOL (dial-up access). And since I've always had AOL, it surprised me that 017 entry appeared suddenly when I removed the about:blank (showing in my original HJT log above).

Move HiJack off of the desktop, to a folder like C:\hjt - after doing that then fix the O17.

By having it in a permanent location, we can recover that if necessary
