I've had problems with spyware in the past and a particularly high risk type was decetected on an adaware scan I did recently.
I would have went straight to the other forums (for malware spyware etc) however I cannot get past an error message to create a hijackthis log to post there in order for the experts on spyware to take over.
I am currently using a winxp laptop, but the win98 is for other work - I will type the error message as accurately as I can in the hope that you are able to help me.

I am unsure what that means....but I cant get passed it.
It may be that all I need to do is to re-install windows over the top of the existing corrupted file (or whatever is causing the fault) but I don't know how to do that on win98.
Hope to hear from you soon, many thanks for your response and help
