I have a 2.66ghz P4, Radeon 9600XT, Audigy 2 and running windows 98SE with 256mb of DDR RAM. Even during windows operations my PC locks up for a few seconds every few minutes. During gameplay it gets worse. It starts randomly jerking and sputtering and will eventually lock up completely. It seems to be worse in newer games. Also, anyone ever heard of the Audigy 2 causing problems like this? Many of my games seem to have less than perfect audio. I wouldn't think an audio card like this one would have problems like that. I have downloaded and installed the latest Audigy 2 drivers but still have the same problem.

hey brettt777,

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

We'll brettt777, your computer has a number of spyware programs that we need to remove. For more info on spyware see the Spyware FAQ link in my signature.

First, please Download CoolWebShredder, from http://209.133.47.20.../CWShredder.exe, Extract it & run the program. Click the Next Button & let it scan. Make sure you let it fix all CWS Remnants.

Next, download and install Spybot Search & Destroy. Also download and install Ad-aware. Using two programs increases the likelihood of eliminating these spyware pests automatically.

Using Spybot: Start Spybot S&D using the "Spybot-S&D (easy mode)" link from your Start menu . Click the Search for updates button, if any are found then click the Download Updates button. After all updates are downloaded, click the Check for problems button. When the scan is complete, place a check next to anything marked in red, then click the Fix selected problems button.

Using Ad-aware: Open Ad-Aware and use the Check for updates now link. Download and accept the latest reference file. When finished click the Start button. When done scanning, the Abort button will change to Next. Click the Next button. Right-click in the Scanning Results window and click "Select all objects". Then click the "Next" button and confirm that you want to delete the selected entries.

When finished, Reboot your computer. Finally, reply to this post with a new HiJackThis log so we can look for any nasties that may have been missed. <_<

CLICK HERE to download Spybot S&D

It does appear you have a number of spyware programs on your computer that Nathan and ditto are helping to remove. This wil greatly help the performance of your system. <_<

I just wanted to pipe in with a comment about the amount of RAM. The sweet spot for Windows XP is 512mb of RAM. If you're planning to play the newest games, consider bumping that to 1gb. You will experience a notable performance increase across your system after upgrading to 512mb of RAM. Upgrading from 512mb to 1gb won't yield much of an improvement, except when playing a few the latest games, and the many games due out soon.

Well, I don't know if we were supposed to have fixed anything yet, but there doesn't seem to be any improvement. It is still very jerky in alot of games (Indycar Series in particular, my newest one) and still has frequent hiccups during windows operation. I have an MSI 645 combo motherboard. Could there be anything in the bios that I need to change?

*frustrated* <_<

I am also wondering if I need to disable ALL of the audio related items in the bios, such as MIDI and audio addresses and IRQ's and ports, etc.

Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files if bold (if found):
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\TIIIEXXA.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MADMODW.EXE

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log.

If this doesn't work we'll take a look at your mobo and video drivers. <_<

You have two new randomonly named files. Let's try again. Reboot in safe mode, restart Hijack This and fix these entries:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\TI3D1AGA.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SKAPI16D.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TI3D1AGA] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\TI3D1AGA.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SKAPI16D] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SKAPI16D.exe
O16 - DPF: {1D4DB7D2-6EC9-47A3-BD87-1E41684E07BB} - http://ak.imgfarm.co...etup1.0.0.8.cab

Delete these files:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TI3D1AGA] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\TI3D1AGA.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SKAPI16D] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SKAPI16D.exe

Reboot and paste a fresh hijack this log. <_<

It doesn't appear you have any antivirus programs running. We recommend the free version from AVG:
