Default Not allowing Logon

I have a Windows 98 PC, I have run diagnostic checks on the Disk & the Memory and have encountered no errors but occasionally when I reboot the PC the Logon display comes up but the "Egg Timer" next to the Mouse Pointer continues showing & doesn't allow any keyboard input to the Password box.
On other occasions the PC has froze after inputing 2-3 chars of Password.

Thanks for any thoughts

Do you have another Keyboard to try ?
Have you scanned for viral infections at all ? Try a scan here and if still no joy then :
Please get Spybot S&D to clear out any spyware.

Install the program and open it.

Before doing any scanning click Online and Search for Updates .
Put a check mark at and install all updates .
Click Check for Problems nd when the scan is finished have Spybot fix all it finds marked in red .

Then after reboot :
Download 'Hijack This!'. or from
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the " scan " button will change into a " save log " button.
Press that, save the log , load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
