    Hi, I am brand new and I have a weird behaving computer. It is running Win98. It will display web pages for about 15 minutes and then need to be rebooted. When it stops, it gives a "No Page to Display" message, like it is not connected to the internet. When it's rebooted, it will work again for about 15 minutes. It also changed my homepage to some other website. I tried to run Spybot, but it said I was missing a file, so that the application could not work (like, image.dll or something like that) and I have emptied my cache and temp. files, but it didn't help any.
    I put a Hijack This log below. Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to TSG!

    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all browser windows and "Fix checked"

    Restart your computer.

    Go here http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ and download Adaware 6

    Install the program and launch it.

    I strongly recommend that you read the help file to familiarize yourself with the program.

    Before running the scan look at the top of the main window and you will see a Gear Icon. This is where you configure the settings. Click on that and then in the next window that pops up click on the "Scanning" tab on the left side. Under "Drives and Folders" put a check by "Scan within archives" and below that under "Memory and Registry" put a check by all the options there.
    The click on the "Tweak" tab and under "Scanning engine" put a check by "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then......under "Cleaning engine" put a ckeck by "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot" then click "Proceed"

    Next in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on "Check for updates now" and get the latest referencefiles.
    After getting the latest referencefiles you are ready to scan.

    Click "Start" and in the next window make sure "Active in depth scanning" is checked then click "Next" and the scan will begin.

    When it is finished let it fix everything it finds.

    Restart your computer.


    Finally go here http://www.net-integration.net/cgi-bin/forum/ikonboard.cgi?;act=ST;f=38;t=3051 for info on how this happens and how to help prevent future attacks.
    On this page you will find links to Javacool's SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard. Get them both and check for updates frequently.
    The Immunize feature in Spybot used in conjunction with SpywareBlaster , SpywareGuard and weekly scans with Spybot and Adaware will go a long way toward keeping you spyware free.

    Important!: ALWAYS check for updated detections and referencefiles before scanning with Spybot and Adaware. And be sure to check for updates to SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard on a weekly basis.

    What file does it say is missing when you run Spybot? If you give us the file name we can get that straightened out fot you.

    I have just installed and ran all the new software....I have my fingers crossed. I had 238 files to delete from ad-aware!! When I try to load Spybot its says that the file "c:/windows/system/imagehlp.dll" cannot be found.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks again!
