To start this is the same little squirlly machine that the mouse won't work on from an earlier POST . I worked around that for now with VNC .
Todays problem . I used CCleaner Spybot , Adaware , and AVG with great effect . the problem is after CCleaner it will freeze at the load up of windows . The splash screen comes up and I get(after I esc the splash screen) "Verifing DMI Pool Data...." then I have to hard boot . It will go into safe mode with no problems . Any ideas ?

Try booting to a command prompt and typing in fdisk /mbr. If it boots into safe mode I would suspect its a driver issue causing the hang. The video card drivers might be stopping a normal boot as they are one of the first devices to be loaded.

I found that problem . In the post about about the mouse not working I ws told to put in the Config.sys DEVICE=C:WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MOUSE.DRV . I remove it and that got me back where I was . I Use Step by step under F8 . Now I just have to figure out that peskey mouse . That little pecker still refuses to work . Any suggestion .

I don't have anything about the mouse in config.sys. Mine works fine. Do you actually have the mouse.com file in C:\windows\system? Is this on 98?

Well I took the line out of config.sys and it does not freeze up anymore, but the mouse still does not work.

Do you have mouse.drv in C:\Windows\System ?

If you have mouse.txt in C:\Windows, you might be able to read through it and get some ideas. Maybe it's a defective mouse?
