Hi Guys
first time posting from me
I have encountered a series of problems, I run windows 98 on a fairly old machine (5 years) 400mhz amd chip (can't remeber the series)
I have had various symptons of PS Guard (& possibly other things as well), I have worked through the suggested processes before reaching this stage, when I ran Trend Housecall, a problem was found with 2 .dll file (wininet was 1), this could not be fixed as the file(s) was in use, when I ran the Panda online scan the problem was fixed but I then noticed wininet.dll was missing (Adaware & Explorer would not work.)

I copied wininet .dll off my dad, replaced in the system folder and this part of the problem seemed better/ ok, When I shut down & restarted a DOS program NECSSFW\IRT.exe had a line stating "rem wininet.dll".

I managed to load Avast, this worked for a while and now can't check for updates, it also found a virus but could not repair.

I have also done a Windows update, I have now downloaded the Hijacj log and this would not open as file "MSVBVM60.DLL" is missing

I look forward to all help you can give
thanks Simon :tazz:
