1. when windows loads up and i click on my name to log on, i get the following:
c++ runtime error
[something about JIT must be enabled]
[buttons for choices] abort, retry, fail
i press retry each time and logging on is successful and everything within windows appears normal, but it remains worrisome that something is going on behind my back or corrupted in some way. what could be causing this to happen?
2. another thing that happens is when i attempt to boot into safe mode, the black dos screen shows all the parts that are starting, but after gagp30.kx a message comes up to press escape to skip sptd. whether or not i press escape at this time, the boot-up stalls and i must manually power off. i thought safe mode was safe and protective, how can it have gotten messed up?
3. one more thing, not a problem but irksome, is that when accessing hotmail, i am forced to turn off all cookie blocking. since the malware infection i've chosen to prompt for all cookies, but afaik, medium default level always used to allow me to access hotmail, but now medium or even low level brings up a message from msn that cookies need be reenabled, and only on allow all can i get in to view my email. is this normal?
sorry if this is a lot to ask all at once, but i can be patient in sorting out each one. thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
