    I have Windows98. At shutdown, I always get illegal operation errors and access violation errors, both related to msdm.exe.

    I ran Norton earlier today and found I had the Swen worm and the Spybot worm. Both have been deleted.

    Could someone please help with the shutdown errors, they're so annoying?
    I assume it's related to the worms?

    See if you have this entry on your msconfig startup list, if you do , uncheck it and reboot: VnCplUpdate

    start >> run >> type msconfig >> ok >> startup tab
