    I am working on a Dell Dimension, Win 98se, Pent. 111, 128 Megs of RAM.
    First issue was conflict with NAV Corp. 7 and Anti Vir caused windows to not shut down (rntsv5? not responding). Removed Anti Vir and then got blue screens- VXD IOS(4) and VXD VMM.
    Now, no more blue screens but machine locks up after windows comes back up after restart. I am running NAV scan to see if it is a virus.
    Any other suggestions? Does this sound like a virus?

    P.S. someone just told me that Anit Vir found Badtrans (she thinks).

    NAV found no viruses. Did a reboot to see what would happen: blue screen- Fatal exception error...0028:c02bf613 in VXD IOS(04) + 000005b7.
    Help please!

    use your win startup disk and pick start disk with cdrom support
    at the c:> propmt you have 2 options
    1 a clean install of windows
    2 reinstall windows


    1for a clean install type smartdrv
    2answer yes to all questions
    3type in the letter of your cdrom default is d but watch while machine is starting and it will tell you the letter
    4 type setup and let windows install

    use 3 and 4 for to reinstall

    this should rid you of errors accumulated in windows

    before I used xp i used to do a clean install once a month just to free the os from the clutter windows collects

    I have run into similar problems after running Windows for a long period of time. I was always downloading some new software to try out and after removing it there was always trash left behind on the system. After a point they start to cause conflicts and make your system act strangely. I agree about a complete restore about once a month. Windows allows so much clutter to gather that it may be a big hassle but also you will see a vast improvement. If you have a CD-R it makes the restore a snap.

    Thanks the help folks. I have recently discovered Microsoft's Backup utility so as we speak backup is running. There are some other issues I have come across after reinstalling Win se updates. I figure it is time just to start from scratch.
    Glad you all are out there. I will let you know how it goes.
