I have Windows ME PC w/ An Intel Pentium III processor @ 996 mhz and 256 kb cache.
The loaded memory is 127.26 mb and showing 48 % free. I purchased this from a Gateway store in 2000 and they loaded MS Works, Norton AV and AOL. I have since removed AOL ( all the traces I can find), upgraded to Norton Systemworks Premier 2005 fo ME, Spysweeper, some Ace Utilities, and SBC internet svc,

The PC is becoming slower and slower, and I have to limit the # of things I have running or it locks up. Re boots are frequent.
Will adding extra RAM memory speed it up or degrade it farther ? If so how much RAM can I add without adverse affect ? I have not installed anything on the motherboard since purchase so I believe there are open slots.

Also as of late I have been receiving an error message I think involving my SBC Yahoo browser that states : Ybrowser has created an error in Kernel32.dll. I can simply close the error window an continue to login to SBC. How do I rid myself of this error message ?

Thanks in advance for the help.

You can add as much RAM as the motherboard can handle. Look in the manual, or look it up online at the mfr's website. However, depending on the type of ram, it might be quite expensive. 5 Years (going on six), is a long time in ram years, and a lot of things have changed.

As for the ybrowser problem, sorry, no idea. Someone else will help ya there.

Scorp.

If I'm correct, that computer should use PC100 or PC133 168-pin RAM modules. A single 128 MB module should cost $50.00 - $60.00, depending on where you buy it. Depending on how many RAM slots are in that computer and how many are already filled will determine whether you should buy 128 MB or 256 MB modules. You should increase the total RAM amount to between 384 - 512 MB. Windows ME will run great with that amount of RAM and with an Intel Pentium III 996 MHz processor.

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

On top of not having enough RAM in that computer, it likely has too many unnecessary programs that are loading during startup and running in the background.

Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - "Startup" tab. Everything you see listed there with a checkmark next to it is loading and running. Other than

ScanRegistry

SystemTray

StateMgr

Antivirus program entries

Firewall program entries


very few others need to load and run.

Go here and click the "HijackThis Self Installer" link so you can download the HJTsetup.exe file. Once it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to start the install process. Direct it to install in C:\PROGRAM FILES\HIJACKTHIS. Once it's been installed, start it up and run a scan with it. Once the scan is finished, save the resulting log, then copy-and-paste its entire contents here. The log will show us what programs are loading and running, and will also show us if any "nasties" are present.

Run a scan with HijackThis, then place a checkmark in and fix

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

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

Go into the startup list like I advised in my earlier reply, remove the checkmark from

OEMRUNONCE (oemrun.exe)

KB891711 (KB891711.EXE)

Click Apply - OK, then reboot. When the "selective startup" window appears during reboot, ignore the message. Just place a checkmark in it, then click OK.

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

Click Start - Search - Files And Folders, select the hard drive ( C: ) to look in, then delete EVERYTHING that appears when you type in

C:\TEMP\*.*

C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.*

*.OLD

*.BAK

MSCREATE.DIR


and click Search.

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

After you've done all of the above, run another scan with HijackThis, then post that new log here.

Frank/Hunter this needs to be done as those O15 entries are not valid

download http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/DelDomains.inf

Right click the DelDomains.inf file and click Install, making sure Internet Explorer is closed. You won't see anything happen. Give it a minute.

Note, if you use SpywareBlaster and/or IE/Spyads, it will be necessary to re-install the protection both afford. For SpywareBlaster, run the program and re-protect all items. For IE/Spyads, run the batch file and reinstall the protection.

MFDnSC:

Thanks for jumping in to assist. I was curious about those O15 entries myself.

hunterdmg:

Deleting all those .BAK files won't hurt anything, especially if they're more than a couple of weeks old.

I was more concerned about you cleaning out the temp files anyway.

Got a new question regarding downloads. I was trying to download some printer drivers from HP and the xfer speed was way slow ( 8 - 20 kb/sec ). My DSL (SBC ) is connected thru a Netgear router ( there is a second computer connected to the same DSL line). Could this router slow things down so much that there becomes download problems ?

I don't use a router or DSL, so I can't answer that.

I use a Linksys hub and Roadrunner cable.
