    I occasionally get some hangups and error screens, but, overall do scan disk and defreg fairly regularly and try to keep my system clean and uncluttered. Still...can one of the gurus please evaluate this hijack log?

    Go into the MSCONFIG "Startup" tab and uncheck the following:

    REALSCHED.EXE

    OSA.EXE

    MSOFFICE.EXE

    WINZIP32.EXE


    None of these programs need to be loading during startup and running in the background. Click the link below and read the article about MSCONFIG.

    I see that you're using McAfee VirusScan for your antivirus program. Besides being a memory hog and bogging down older computers, it's common for it to generate error messages.

    None of those are checked in MSCONFIG Start Up.

    Look in the MSCONFIG "Startup" tab. They should be checked there because they're showing in your list of running processes. Uncheck them, apply the change, then reboot.
