I realize my Windows 98 is a dinasour, but it's all I've got. A couple years back, you guys introduced me to Spyware Blaster and Spybot, which I still use. Since Norton no longer supports 98, I downloaded Avasti for antivirus. The three programs aren't showing any spware or viruses. But, partcularly when I'm on the net, the computer freezes for 30 seconds or more, of completely crashes and I have to force close the browser.

I kind of feel like I'm out of options, and would appreciate any support.

Best wishes,

Chris Behnan

I've been a bit busy but read your post only now. What are the specs on your 98 system? What browser do you use?
