After downloading an MPEG movie and bring up ANY player (Real or MS) my PC freezes. I cannot unlock it unless I reboot. When I save the movie, and then load it from the player it works fine. I very often also have freezing when surfing to a site with motion. I have tried the most logial solutions ie: deleating the players and reloading but to no avail. I have just realtime loaded now and MS Player totally void of my system. Running Windows 98.

Filecutter,since this newupd is spyware,you might want to download this free program called Ad-Aware5.6.This program will scan your computer and check for spyware componnets and remove them.You can get it here

http://www.lavasoftusa.net

After you d/l Ad-aware,go back and download the lastest signature file,unpack it to the lavasoft folder.

Here a link about the newsupd being spyware and how you got it.
