To eliminate a couple of things, boot the PC and keep tapping F8 right after the beep until you get options, select command prompt only, type scanreg.exe /fix then press enter, it will run through a few screens then say registry repaired. Press enter then press ctrl + alt + delete keys together to reboot.

When it has loaded, click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools then run system file checker and replace any files it asks for from the 98SE CD.

Running these checks will rebuild the registry and replace missing system files

Hello lanmoe,

As you are still unable to run spyware scans:

The Malware Team will deal with this

Please go here:

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log in a new topic in the Malware Forum

There is a virus which prevents online scans etc, try to run all the programmes, if you get a problem with any of them then post a topic in the malware forum asking for their advice
