Actually it wound up being a Windows problem that occurred when any program tried to load. The error on the Virus program was mentioned because it's the first program to load on boot.
I was able to get around this by doing a registry rollback. Had to reinstall a couple of programs, but it's doing better now.
My problem now is that the machine will not access the internet. It is visible on the network, can be browsed remotely and can browse the network itself....I just can't get onilne.
Any suggestions there? Again, using Win98
