    Good Day,

    I have a inspiron dell laptop, with win 98 se operating system.
    It is very slow and continues to freeze up. It freezes in every thing i do.
    i tried to reinstall win 98 se, but ended up doing a sytem restore. All of a sudden i couldn't access my juno account it told me in error has occured. So I uninstalled juno, now it will not allow me to reinstall it, it said couldn't move a juno ocx. file.

    So I had to install aol and use that account, but it freezes on me.
    What shall i do? do i have a virus?
    I also did a scan disk, defragment and disk clean up.

    HELP

    Er...W32/NetSpy. I believe that is a trojan

    You should download Hijack This from: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

    Do a scan, save the log...then copy and paste the results in this thread. Someone will have a look at it and help you. (y)
