    I have a huge problem with my system. I cannot use the

    internet for extended periods of time before my system

    crashes. I have 2 cases that I need some expert help

    with. This problem is so bad that I have to type this

    in notepad before opening Internet Explorer and pasting

    it into the forum.

    1. I have McAfee Personal Firewall installed, and this

    happens when it is enabled.:

    When I use the internet after a few minutes my screen

    turns blue with the following message:

    STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xF9372343, OxF1F13680,

    MpFirewall.sys - Adress F9372343 base at F9370000,

    Datestamp 3d40500a

    Beginning Physical Memory Dump...

    2. When I disable the firewall, and use the internet

    for a short period, my computer slows down dramatically.

    The Task Manager tells me that CPU usage is at 100%.

    The TEMP folder is never empty. There are ultiple files

    with similar names like:
    There is also an application called rtdrvmon in the TEMP

    folder with these files.
    I cannot delete these files because another program is

    using them.

    Please note that noe of this happens when the modem is

    turned on and I don't use the internet.

    I am running:

    Windows XP HE
    Service Pack 1

    Dell Dimension
    Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.60GHz
    256 MB RAM

    Also, now my Recycle Bin is full, but when I open it there is nothing there! When I click "Empty Recycle Bin" I get a message that says "Are you sure you want to delete WINDOWS?". It doesn't go away when I restart!

    Terribly sorry, ive had that recycle bin problem too, and i can tell you how i fixed it on my computer. i simply deleted some useless file, then re-emptied the recycle bin and it went away. cant promise itll work, but i think i can assure you that windows wouldnt delete something unless you put it there. and ive clicked YES on that deleting windows prompt, and it just gives an error message on how it cant do it. i would file this under BUGS for microsoft.
