Ran pc scan w/pc doctor. Came up with invalid activeX\com file(142) and invalid activeX\com subsection file(114). Have searched internet and found nothing on it. Can someone tell me how to fix.

Probably malicious activeX controls installed in IE.

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.

I am also having the same problem, except my PC is not connected
to the Internet. I have added all the Windows update. OS is
Windows 98 SE.
