I am running Windows 98 with a Pentium III processor and 340 megs of ram on a cable modem with Spybot, Norton Antivirus 2005, Ad aware, Memory Accelerator, Disk Keeper defragmenting program and PC Pitstop programs.

When trying to open programs many times I notice that the computer seems to stall or lock up entirely. When I hit control-alt-delete it tells me that the program(s) are not responding. It says many times that CCAPP is not responding. Sometimes I can end or cancel the program other times I need to reboot.

I run Norton, Ad adware, spybot, etc. all the time and block whatever they tell me too. Norton says there are no viruses. the Memory Accelerator is supposed to increase the speed of the comp, so sometimes when something is not responding I can run that to free up ram space. Sometimes this works, other times not.

The disk keeper program defrags the system whenever in the screen saver mode.

The internet works pretty good, but since I am on a cable modem I would think it should be much faster than it is. Some pages take a very long time to load, others do not.

Is there anything that can be done to help this problem? Please E-mail me with your suggestion to EMAIL ADDRESS removed by moderator.

Please let me know as soon as you can.

Thanks.
Ira

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

That particular file is part of Norton.. Un-install and re-install it and see if that helps..

I do know the file is from Norton and have already done the uninstall, re-install and still the same thing.

Try un-installing Norton and get AVG or Avast (free versions) and see what happens..

From what I've read and heard, NAV2005 has been causing a multitude of problems everywhere..

Where do I get Avast from? It is an antivirus program as well? Do you get updates on it like Norton?
