Specifics on the errors always helps.

The illegal operation is normally video related.

Boot into safe mode. do you have the same problem?
Right click on the 'My computer' icon and select device manager. click the plus next to monitor and if there is more than one monitor showing.... remove them all. Also check your display adapter ... sometimes it loads two of them as well. but... do not remove them unless you have the driver disk handy... Once you reboot it will redetect .. most of the time it will find the driver with no problem ...

next thing is to remove all of your temporary internet files and cookies. Right click on Internet explorer and select properties. Click on delete files.
A scandisk and defrag is always good at this point.

I recommend you try to find the anti-virus program 'stinger'. It's old and somewhat out of date but it always seems to find nuisance hijacker viruses pretty well. If and when it finds them ... select the option to delete and continue searching for more. You might want to run it twice just in case.
Hopefully this will speed you up enough to let us know what the exact error messages were.
