    Hi indigowindow,alot of times that error is because of spyware componnets.You say that the first one was because of sluggesh performance and spyware has been known to cause that.Lets have a look at your startup programs.Go to Start>Run>type in msinfo32>click ok.Click on the + sign next to software environment>click on startup programs>click edit>select all>click edit>copy,and paste the page back here.

    Ok,glad to hear you have Ad-aware.I dont see an anti virus program.This Script Sentry,i see is a program thats suppose to stop scripts.I hope you dont think this is all you need for anti virus protection.There is a free anti virus program thats is suppose to be good,but i seem to have loss the link to it.Am sure someone will post it for you.Lets remove that from startup and see if that program is the culprit.Go to Run>type in msconfig>click on startup>remove the check mark next to script sentry.click apply,then ok and reboot the computer.I just think this might be what is causeing this error,if not you can always put it back.If that doesnt work try this.Go to Start>Shutdown>re-start in ms-dos.At the c:\ prompt type

    Smartdrv hit the enter key

    Deltree/y History (hit the enter key)
    Deltree/y Tempor~1 (hit the enter key)
    Deltree/y cookies (hit the enter key)

    Exit (hit the enter key)

    If you truly don't have any AV program running on the PC, here's a link to a free <a href=http://www.grisoft.com/html/us_index.htm> AV program</a>. That may be a good place to start just to be sure your clean. And I'd suggest not just using it to do a one time check for a virus. Leave it installed going forward to keep yourself protected.

    And maybe start by having your computer scanned on line at <A HREF="http://housecall.antivirus.com/">Trend Micro HouseCall </A>

    And I'd remove BHO Cop from Startup. If you check every now and then for 'newcomers', that's more than enough.

    I've never detected any Browser Helper Objects that were not required, incidentally.
    The two that are there currently belong to Adobe Acrobat and Roboform, and they are both required)

    Grtz.

    i admit i don't know much about bho's. i don't want this to degenerate into guesswork. if no one knows what these errors are, so be it. i'm not going to start using anti virus programs. i've lived this long without them. researching these errors i've come up with something about mcaffee and something about java scripts. mcaffee i don't have, and java scripts i'll have to know more about.

    Why not have your computer scanned on line?
    Or is that against your principles as well? ;)

    Besides, If you don't, you'll never be able to fully exclude the possibility of a virus causing this error, although that's probably unlikely.

    the only people that seem to really need anti virus programs, based on what i've been reading, are those who can't resist opening unknown emails. i've been on line for 2 years downloading all kinds of programs, blah blah blah, and i've yet to get a virus.

    can you explain that a bit more. how would i get a virus from viewing a web page? or viewing email? other than thru a script.

    It's obviously your choice one way or the other but just so no one comes along and gets the idea that if they don't read email attachments, they can't get infected, the newer strains of viruses don't need you to open a thing. Simply reading an email message or viewing a webpage is more than enough to infect you.

    If you want to turn off Windows scripting then your protected in Outlook from viruses spread by reading emails. At least today as we speak you are. Tomorrow could be another story and webpages are another story completely. There you'd have to just about turn off ActiveX and a bunch of other webpage related features to truly protect yourself. And even after you've turned all of that off, how can you be sure there aren't new ways of spreading a virus in the wild? Obviously the answer to that is, you can't be sure.

    Anyway, I'm not here to convince you personally. I can tell your positively convinced you'll never get a virus and not running an AV is up to you. I just don't want anyone else that comes along to think they're protected if they don't open email attachments. It's just not true.

    BTW, I was alot like you up until about four years ago because I felt invincible much like yourself. But after seeing a few infections first hand, I realized no ones invisible so why even take the chance. But I do understand how you feel though.
