Windows 98 start up problem

777 Views 8 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  mobo
When I turn on my other computer I get a pop up error that when I clcik on it (OK/Close, etc..) it just loops back to that error message and pop ups again. Because of this, I can not use that computer

Here's the wording from the error message:

1) CPUSA.exe - Error message reads: "Can not find the file CPUSAVE.EXE (or one of its components". Make sure the path an file name are correct and that all required libraries are available"

Any ideas on how I can by pass this message, so I can use my computer. I have Add-Ware so once I get to it I can make efforts to clean it up.

Any ideas would be apprecated.

Thanks, Scott L

Its viral:

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!
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.

Here is a visual how to for safe mode should you still need it and please post that log as well
