I have cut and pasted wht I wrote in the windows 98 part of ther forum so as to help with the explanation of whats going on. below is the original post i made there.

Hello everyone,
Thank you first off for having such a great place to help PC illiterates such as myself.
Now to the problem:
I am running windows 98 and I have a pentium II 350 mhz processor on my desktop pc and lately, about the past 6 months, I have heard my desktop run something in the background. It sounds very faint like the harddrive is running programs but the sound is very faint. I did take the harddrive out and put it into an external harddrive case to load my files to my laptop, and it didnt run in the background as it does when it is loaded in my desktop tower? Im stumped?

I ran all the programs on the *start here page* of the forum, but couldnt run the web based virus scan, including the Panda version. I also couldnt run the ewido program either. ( it only runs in windows 2000 and above)

What the problem is doing is two fold: My desktop keeps locking up and giving me the fatal error just occured window, usually it says the error is either in KERNELL32.DLL, or in OLEAUT32.DLL,Sometimes, but not often it gives me another fatal error message of other problems too. Then it locks up or has to be restarted to run properly. Also my cursor is very erratic when I'm opening IE6 or other programs(opening *my computer*, *my documents* etc.) as in it just doesnt want to move when I use the mouse to move it while they are opening up.

The second part of my problem is: I just had a network set up and was able to print one test page from the laptop I have on the network, from the desktop pc, then nothing would print anymore from the desktop pc, and also I couldnt access any more shared files on my desktop pc from the laptop. (The desk top is the PC that has the programs running in the background very faintly.) I was told by the guy that set up my network that something sounds like it is running in the background, and he thinks thats what is stopping the 2 pc's from communicating. He says maybe the desktop just has too much running for the laptop to access the shared files.

The desktop is also running extremelly slow and most of the time locks up on me.

I have done the registry fix in DOS to try to fix the registry keys, as in, hit start, run, in the box type, scanreg /fix. It helped a little but I still cant get to my network from the laptop to the desktop.

I do have the highjackthis file if it is needed to help you all to help me. Thats another thing, when I tried to *save log* from the highjackthis window, I had to rename it a different file so that it could be accessed in notepad. When I tried to open the saved .log file it would say that an error occured while using the wizard to open the file. Maybe this has something to do with the other problems I dont know. I can open other files with the wizard though.
Thanks for all your help in advance
Brian
