Please be patient with my ignorance...I am not a hi-tech person, which will soon become very evident...
After I turned my computer on, a scan disk display appeared on the screen. On this screen, it was scanning - bad/good/clusters/hidden sectors...At one point, (not a direct quote) there was information stating that I not shut Windows 98 down properly, but I had shut it down correctly; however, during my previous session, I did unplug my computer b/c it was frozen. I know that I shouldn't do that. I also received a message stating that I needed to backup my files b/c of damage to the C: drive. My computer has been freezing sporatically when I am on-line.
I also received the following message box - missing shortcut - "aoltray.exe" It seemed like the computer was trying to browse for this shortcut. I went to the Trend Micro site, which recommended this site, to resolve the problem. On the Trend site, I tried to download a JRE, but I didn't have Java. I tried to download Java, but I received a message - "...exception JAVA Security Access Control Exception."
The most recent message I've received stated something like - "C:\WINDOWS\SETBUG.EXE" Is it possible to get rid of the "exe" files? Does any one know what may be wrong with my system - virus...? Please advise - thank you.
