Ok I am new here and I hope someone can help me out. I am running windows 98. When I am using Internet explorer I have no problems until I close IE. When I close IE my computer freezes for at least a minute. I can not open any other programs, start menu etc.... If i click on an Icon on my desktop it gets highlighted but does not open. After about a minute or so everything that i clicked on while frozen opens up. If I have multiple IE windows open and I close all but one of them I do not have this problem.

I have run adware/spybot/cw shredder and they tell me i am clean. Any idea of what it could be?

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

Thanks for the response. I typed in eventvwr.msc in the run option but received the message "Windows can not find eventvwr.msc"
