Everytime my computer starts up, a message comes up saying "this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." Everytime I type something on AIM the rundll32 thing pops up and closes it down. So as of right now, I can not get on the internet, AIM, firefox, internet explorer, limewire, windows media player, or any other programs installed on my computer. If anyone has any suggestions, that would be GREAT!!

This will rebuild rather than restore the registry and also replace missing or corrupt system files

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 then reboot.

When it has loaded to the desktop, click start, programmes accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then run disc defragmenter from system tools

It could have been a number of things, programmes can take exception to another programme immediately or during use

If you click start then programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools, then click registry checker it will ask if you want to back up the registry, click yes.

Do this every day for a week or so, after you check the PC is running well, then after a week you will have a store of good back ups to refer to, if you need to, which you probably won't

You can run the procedure in post 2 whenever you get a major blip as rebuilding the registry and replacing missing or corrupt system files, is only a bit short of re-installing 98

Ok, I sorta have a problem. You said to 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 then reboot. Well, everytime I click start and click sysyem tools and try to run it, my computer freezes. So I can't run the system file checker. Are their any more options??

If you click on Start >Run and type in SFC System File Checker should run from here. (98se)
