    Over the past few weeks or more I've been having large amounts of system issues. The most prevelant right now is my IE crashing while on websites. It just locked up on me almost a dozen times in a row just now while trying to get into this site for posting this message.
    Additinally my system, even when running minimal applications has been operating at less than 68% resources free.

    System info:
    Pentium III 1GHz - 256MB RAM
    Win98SE 4.10.2222 A
    IE 5.6.0.2800.1106
    40GB Hard Drive (in 3 partitions)

    A couple times when my system locked up and I did the Ctrl-Alt-Del to find out what was not responding so I could End it, I found that my AOL Buddy List (for AIM) was also not responding. I don't have AIM running right now, but even without it running I was just using Explorer to open up my hijack logs and that window has locked up on me and I can't close it.
    I'll have to try killing it after I post this. Don't want to risk losing my post.

    I've already run updated McAfee scans, Norton Systemworks scans and diagnostics, AdAware, SpyBot, and various other ways to try and clean up my system and I have not been able to determine why my system keeps locking up and crashing.
    Also occasionally I have difficulties with browsing and sending email. Either connections being lost or slowed.

    I'll post this now. Anything else needed just ask.

    No, I don't have Norton Antivirus installed. I only installed Norton SystemWorks. I did not install the antivirus portion of that package as I already have always used McAfee.
    The Norton service that is listed as running is the Norton Protected Recycle Bin.

    What methods would I use for checking my hardware? I've looked at stuff a little bit, but don't see anything wrong. I've also run the hardware diagnostics through Norton Systemworks.

    I'm not sure how I would be able to check my hardware such as you are suggesting.

    Also, I don't understand how it could simply be hardware when the system only locks up when using IE and only when browsing websites. All other applications work just fine most of the time.

    Actually it's not just IE. The other problem it causes is the my Netscape Communicator can no longer access my email when the IE locks up. The IE always seems to lock up first (and I have to End Task it), but then the mail doesn't work and in order to get it to work I have to reboot.

    Hi

    WUCrtUpd.exe

    This info from 'Answers That Work Task List Programs'
    http://www.answersthatwork.com/Tasklist_pages/tasklist_w.htm
    Wucrtupd WUCrtUpd.exe (Microsoft)

    Windows Update Critical Update Notification. This will appear in your Task List if you did a Windows Update at some stage and installed the
    "Critical Update Notification" component. In some versions this process is scheduled to run every 5 minutes and you cannot change the schedule (under Windows 98 you can get round it with the "sucrtupd" technique, but not under other versions of Windows).

    Recommendation :
    Do not walk, run to your "Add/Remove Programs" icon in the Control Panel and immediately de-install Microsoft Windows Critical Updates Notification.
    The consequences of some Microsoft Critical Updates have been such that the last thing you need is something to remind you, and therefore entice you to update your Windows environment with the very latest bug fix (which is what critical updates really are) from Microsoft.
    It is not just that some of those updates have been quite simply disastrous (remember May/June
    2002 ?), it is also that too often for our liking, the full consequences of installing some of those updates are not always clearly spelt out by Microsoft. Yes, some of those updates are needed from a security point of view, but in 98% of cases if you either run a good firewall or your PC is configured securely, then you are
    protected anyway, so do not fix what doesn’t need fixing. It is best that you simply do a Windows Update once every two or three months, say, and only at times when you do not require
    your PC urgently in the following 24 hours ! Finally, quite aside from the above, WUCRTUPD is also sometimes responsible for illegal operations, 3-seconds mouse freezes, WULOADER error messages, and Invalid Page Faults in KERNEL32. Have we said enough ?

    If you are running both IE6 AND Netscape.....that could be/is a huge resource drainer right there. I used to run NSW on start up too, but I finally figured out that it is not needed then, just when you want or need to use whatever particular part of it. Sometimes, when removing items from the startup tab of msconfig, you must also go to the registry itself to remove an item out of the run or run services string to REALLY keep it from being reloaded in the start up group once it has been used. MSN Messenger was really bad about that sort of thing.


    Good Luck

    I have just removed Microsoft Windows Critical Update Notification from my Add/Remove Programs. I'll keep you guys updated on if this resolves my problem or not or if my system continually keeps crashing.

    As for IE6 and Netscape. I use IE6 for all browsing. The only component of Netscape I use is the Netscape Communicator 4.7 email component. I've been doing this for years.

    Well it is definately my IE6 browser that is causing this. I removed WCU a few days ago. And my system is still locking up.
    Now just last night I had been using other applications for hours, including email. Within moments after opening up IE6 to go to a webpage, the browser locked up and that in turned locked up my internet connection.
    I suppose I could try reinstalling IE6, though I've never done a reinstall of IE before. As it always seems to be so intricately intwined with WindowsOS's, is it safe to download an install file, Uninstall it, and then re-Install it?
    Or should I just re-Install over the one that is already there?

    Or does anyone have any better suggestions?

    You could try a repair on IE. Control Panel|Add/Remove Programs. Select M$ Internet Explorer. Click "Add/Remove". Next panel, select "Repair IE" and OK. Can't hurt :D

    I've done the Repair IE on the system and that doesn't seem to have helped. Tonight coming to this site, the browser locked up on me. And it's been happening occasionally for the past week or so.

    Not only that, but my other computer (an older one) is having the same problem. That computer is a PII 450, also with Win98SE on it. It doesn't make sense that this would be happening on two separate computers, one of which I don't even use that much.

    On a side note, I'm considering the possibility of upgrading both computers to WinXP Pro. My dad's thinking of upgrading his as well, as he's constantly having problems with his (WinME).
    Anyone have any thoughts and/or suggestions regarding this? Also, is there any way to obtain 3 licenses for WinXP without paying the full retail cost 3 separate times? I know each machine has to have it's own license, as opposed to Win98.

    Couple of items for consideration... I noticed in your HJT log file, the IE version is shown as 5.6.0.2800.1106. I didn't even know M$ made that version???

    Anyway, I've had lots of problems with versions above IE5.5 SP2. That's the one I run now and have had no probs.

    If you are considering going to XP, I suggest you go to the Microsoft XP site where they have the system requirements listed.

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/home/evaluation/sysreqs.asp

    They say XP will operate on as little as 64mb of RAM with 128mb recommended. You will find the majority of XP users go with 512mb.

    If you want to remove I E and reinstall it we can do that. You will need to save your favorites to a floppy or file or a cd. You will need a full version of IE handy. Would you like to try that? If so click the link that I will edit in this post shortly and download then run I E eradicator. Then reinstall.

    Ummmm scratch that for a minute,,,,,,you have IE 6

    Ok I looked it over and over,,my attitude is this,,,I wholly believe in sharing and learning so please accept this question in the good faith it is intended. I am not seeing IE 5.6 would someone be kind enough to help me out? :)
