    I'm desperate, guys. Battling spyware for weeks -- toolbars, mostly, lately Lycos SideSearch, and still don't know where it came from -- and have tried everything (spybot, Adaware, etc.), but after all that I still only get a few minutes after rebooting before the display goes wonky, everything slows down, and anything I try to do returns the message, "There is not enough free memory to run this program" and the computer crashes. Of course I've got plenty of RAM if only something weren't eating it up. I'm at my wit's end, and ready to wipe the drive and start over. But I'd sure like to fix this, adn would be grateful for any help. Here's my Hiojack log (and the OS is Windows 98Se, by the way), which I'm posting before the memory runs out:
