I think anti spam program screwed up my PC
Hi, This old PC was working great untill I downloaded a antispam program and it screwed everything up. Sorry but I don't remember name of program, I can maybe find it on google search if it makes any difference. I got rid of it but the PC still has problems. It was so bad I formated and reinstalled 98 and it didn't help. Now my spyware killer program don't work, the norton 2002 stops working and has message something about run time problem, PC is really slow, programs don't respond, mouse is all jerky when you move it. I put in my extra CPU tonight and didn't make a difference, I manualy updated norton and scaned it and nothing came up. Any of you smart people out there have any ideas as to what is going on? Could it be DIMM stick is bad? Before I could have norton scan going in background and keep right on doing whatever I was doing and it didn't slow down at all, now when more than one thing is going on at a time I fall asleep waiting for things to happen. I noticed that when mouse is jerky the hard drive also seems to start and stop real quick, I mean the mouse stops for a spit second when hard drive is quiet for the split second. All I know is I am not a happy camper right now, I try to improve things and end up screwing things up all the time, I am about ready to take this thing and run it over with my suburban a few times to put it out of its misery. It is a PIONEX with M5ALA ver 2.0 board, AMD K6-2\500 CPU, A 12 and a 6 gig quantum bigfoot hard drives [12 is the main one], 2 64 and one 32 sticks of PC100 DIMM, hooked up with cable through a fast ethernet 10/100 card to a router card in our other main PC, and it has win98 OS. I just ordered a 128 PC100 DIMM stick tonight to get more memory and now also to see if it fixes my problem. Or is my problem another M5ALA board going bad? [3rd board I have had in this thing] I realize that this is just a bunch of old junk to some of you but it is all I can afford to play with right now, and wife will kill me if I even look inside of the newer systemax we have LOL.
