About two weeks ago my machine decided to remove program links from the Program menu. It also removed some of the DLL's so the programs would not work. These programs were from the Office 200 suite. Also during internet browsing, the IE explorer 6.0 locks up. I have to CTRL-ALT-Del to end task to get out of the lock up. Machine is also running slow when starting programs.

I have a P2 667 Dell that has 256MB and a 14 gig HD. It's running win98 SE.

I have run ADWARE, SPYBOT and TRENDMICRO Anti-virus already and have deleted the infections. I am also running Symantec Anti-Virus.

I did run the HIJACKTHIS and saved the log. Do you wnat me to send this to you? I read in other places not to send the log until asked for.

Please help. Thanks for any assistance, in advance.

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go! :tazz: I'm kool808 .

Try updating first your Windows Update.

Please read THIS first before posting.

Post a log as a new topic in the Malware Removal Forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

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.
