Zip316:

Click Start - run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - Startup(tab). ScanRegistry should be among the list. Place a checkmark next to it, click Apply - OK, then reboot.

----------------------------------------------------------------

You're using an outdated version of HijackThis. Replace it with version 1.99.0. You can get it in the spyware tools section at http://www.majorgeeks.com/

-----------------------------------------------------------------

I see a C:\WINDOWS.000 folder in your log. Have you or someone else reinstalled Windows in that computer? It should always be reinstalled in C:\WINDOWS. Look in the C:\ directory and see if both a WINDOWS and WINDOWS.000 folder are there.

What likely happened is while you were reinstalling Windows, you excepted C:\WINDOWS.000 to install it in, instead of removing the .000 to make it C:\WINDOWS before you continued on.

Personally, I would delete the C:\WINDOWS.000 folder, then reinstall Windows again and make sure that it reinstalls in C:\WINDOWS.

Walmart has some decent Compaq and HP computer packages, but make sure that you really want to spend all that money instead of fixing your current computer.

What type and speed is the processor and how much RAM is installed in your current computer? It might be old and slow enough anyway to warrant buying a new one.

If you want to go for broke and delete the C:\WINDOWS.000 folder and then reinstall Windows in the C:\WINDOWS folder, do that first before we do anything with the HijackThis log.

I have no idea what happened to ScanRegistry. Reinstalling Windows in its proper folder should hopefully resurrect it.

----------------------------------------------------------------

If that computer has a Pentium II processor, the speed should be 266 MHz or higher(I don't recall what the speed is for the first Pentium III processor). Windows 98 will run okay with that processor and 128 MB of RAM - as long as it's not hobbled with a bloated startup load and other memory-hoggish programs.

You'll probably be happier with a new computer, once you get it set up and running. Windows XP takes some getting used to after using Windows 98 for so long. I've got mine set up though so it looks a lot more like the Windows 98 interface.

Does both the WINDOWS and WINDOWS.000 folder have a long list of files with a CAB extension?

Do you have a Windows 98 startup disk and the Windows CD, and do you know how to reinstall Windows in DOS mode?

Okay. I didn't see that it also had a WINDOWS~000 folder. If it's got nothing but temp files, delete the whole folder.

Also, go into Find - Files And Folders, select the hard drive to look in, then delete everything that appears under:

*.TMP

C:\TEMP\*.*

C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.*


The Recycle Bin is going to pile up, big time, so you'll need to empty it. Some of those files you delete may also be too big to go in the Recycle Bin.

That computer is a real mess. :(

You should be able to reinstall within Windows. It's a matter of going into the WINDOWS or WINDOWS.000 folder and double-clicking the "Setup.exe" file.

Before you start, press Ctrl-Alt-Delete to open the Close Program box, then "end task" everything, except Explorer and Systray. If a second box appears for something that you end tasked, ignore what it says and just click "end task" again.

That sounds like a good idea. Once you get the new computer set up and running, you can play around with the old one. Personally, I'd format the hard drive and install Windows from scratch in DOS mode. You'll start out "clean" and probably make that computer run a lot better. I did that with my Compaq Presario 5900T and regained over 2 GB of hard drive space, besides getting rid of all the useless and redundant junk.
