I have Windows ME. After I get off the internet, and leave my computer up, it will lock up/freeze on the desktop. I have to do a hard shut down (control/alt/delete doesn't touch it). Also my computer seems to be running slower than usual.

I have bit defender for a virus scanner/fire wall, I downloaded all the micro soft security updates, and have put on spybot S&D and ad-aware. However since yesterday ad-aware quits responding showing between 4 and 11 critical items that I can't get to in order to delete them. Spybot is still running ok and knocked off a 4 things on the last scan. I have rebooted, and ran a hijackthis log. Can anyone see if there is something causing a problem that the other systems are missing? Thanks in advance

Hi, Did you disable System Restore? Your scans may be detecting files in the RESTOR_ area...which they cannot fix. Turning off System Restore is neccessary so that you can remove all the infected files, malware etc from your Restore Points...disabling System Restore directions/info here:

After things are cleaned up, you can create a new Restore Point. If you did do this already looks like I will not be able to help you....the log is fine.

Byteman,

Thanks for the suggestion. I did what you said about system restore (had not done that before). I also just tried disabling my bit defender (not on-line) when I ran ad-aware...worked beautifully. I got on-line, and its running back to normal speed. Now, I just need to see if it locks up on me when I get offline. Thanks again.
