Isass.exe system error
Indicates a revision number not known by the service.
It may be a more recent revision than the service is aware of.
And my computer was stuck in a reboot cycle. I read through some past posts here of people who had similar errors, but I did not see one the same as this so I am not sure if this was a real error or a virus. To make a long story short, I ended up reinstalling a XP. So my first question is was this a virus and if so should it be gone with the new installation or could it still be around and cause a new problem? I have had clean virus scans but also did the day before the problem occured.
The second part of my question is about firewall's, I had my firewall turned off as it did not allow Aol 9.0SE to function properly and I was told that since I had dial-up I really didn't need one. So should I be using a firewall and if so does anyone know if any of the free firewall's are compatible with Aol 9.0?
