Hi 17 female. Alright, so I have windows 98. I recently went to the Add or Remove programs under Control Panel to delete a bunch of stuff to help my computer run faster. I know I deleted something I needed because now I get these pop-ups, not like a website pop-up or a "click here to win!" kind. They're like this:
--------------------
Message from SYSTEM to ALERT on ___(date and time)

STOP! WINDOWS REQUIRES IMMEDIATE ATTENTION

Windows has found CRITICAL SYSTEM ERRORS.

To fix the errors please do the following:
1. Download Registry Repair from: http://www.the32fix.com
2. Install Registry Repair
3. Run Registry Repair
4. Reboot your computer
FAILURE TO ACT NOW MAY LEAD TO DATA LOSS AND CORRUPTION!
--------------------


Sometimes theres a different website listed on the pop-up, but I'm not sure what it means or how to get them to stop. Pleeease help me. I have a program on my computer called CCleaner, I know it's good but I'm afraid to mess anything else up. Help, thanks :whistling: :blink:

Hi Starletgirl
I don't think you have damaged your registery. The program you have is a popup - adaware type thing. you need to download adaware and spybot and run them.
Removing a program from where you did cannot affect the registry.

Thanks Peter :whistling: I'm downloading spybot right now, it's almost half-way finished. I'm not sure how to download adaware though. I clicked on the link for it, but I don't know what to click on?
Thanks
