My weekly McAfee scan crashes the system every time. So I uninstalled the program and tried to install Internet Security Suite 2007 which I bought. Next, the system continually crashed on bootup. Uninstalled the ISS 2007. Downloaded fresh copies of Ad-aware 2007 and updated Spybot. The Ad-aware found only tracking cookies, and running the Spybot crashed the system. There is a trigger somewhere that causes the crash. Any ideas?

Run HJT again and put a check in the following:

Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application. This is NOT supported for use in 9x or ME and probably will not install in those systems

Upgrading Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 update 5.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java!
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.

:( I removed and installed the proper version of Java, added some more fix it programs as you can see below, deleted entries on HJT, and still have the problem of crashing the system when view video and interacting with complex pdf pages. Here is the most recent HJT:

Could this be nothing more complicated than lack of memory (768 MB), or the Win2000 OS? There is a lot of chatter from the computer on the floor just before the system crashes. Any guesses as to whether it could be hardware or software?

Well, did the cleanup (though I had already several times in the last several days), ran the disk check (came back with no errors or bad sectors), defraged the main drive, and still have the same issue. What's next to try? Thanks!

Thanks. I thought that too, so I removed it last week by uninstalling it. Sadly, it had no effect on the current problem. Should I be asking in another forum that deals more with hardware issues?
