I'm using 98 SE and want to run a scan in safe mode but I don't know how to go into it. Does anyone know the combination?

With Win 98 and ME if you hold the CTRL key down as the computer is starting up you will automatically go to the DOS menu for a Safe Mode start.

@buckshotdad1960.

Whay do you want to scan in Safe Mode?

Why won't it scan in normal mode?

Which virus software are you using?

I bet you have loads of apps running in the backgound which are hogging more resources. When your computer starts up in normal mode and you can only see your desktop do a CTRL+ALT+DEL and make a list of the programs showing in Task Manager and post it here. :thumbsup:

Its not a matter of deleting running processes thats easy. The problem is why are they running if your not using them? Every process uses system resources/memory. How much memory do you have installed?

You haven't posted the Task Manager list like I asked. :thumbsup:

Thank you boopme, I found that information very interesting! See, this is the problem with inheriting someone else's computer! You also inherit its problems, and there may never be anyway to tell which problems it came with and which ones I may have caused! I do know this, When my other computer went down I took my peoplepc cd and put it on this computer. Even though It works good enough to get me on the net I have a lot of problems with it. Maybe it is responsible for this RNAAPP I don't know.

Ok, here goes,

Bleepingcomputer.com -> Replying in safe mode - mozilla firefox
rnaapp
peopelac
peoplepc online
explorer
swdoctor
Ccapp
Dialer
Ppshared
systray
bartshel

319.0mb of ram
41% free
file system 32 bit
virtual memory 32 bit
disk compression not installed
no pc card sockets are installed

And I do not have the 98 SE start up cd for this computer.

I'm using norton, spyware doctor and superantispyware.

And did I mention everything is held together with a tooth pic and a band aid?

Maapp is related to RNaapp. the rest seemm related to the internet connection.
Example
The process PeoplePal Module or BartShell Module belongs to the software BartShell Module or PeoplePC BartShell Module or Pinnacle MPEG Realtime Codec by PeoplePC (www.peoplepc.com). See http://www.file.net/process/bartshel.exe.html

I googled each and you'll see an explanation.

Have you scanned this PC for malware as these can be legit or malware but that would depend on each files location. AS in Bartshel.exe is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files". Known file sizes on Windows XP are 151552 bytes (75% of all occurrence), 135168 bytes, 150016 bytes, 131072 bytes.

Yes there is a bit of crap running there. The 2 things Windows needs to run is systray and explorer the thing you could easily remove with msconfig, Run: msconfig.

There is another app that I would recommend but I'm not allowed to tell you in here. :thumbsup:

That is correct per BC policy ~ rigel

What?

Thats it?

Run msconfig!

I bare my computers soul to the public and worked my finger to the bone pecking out all that info and thats the best you can come up with is run msconfig?

Sh********T

If the shoulders of your computer had stripes on them I'd be ripping them off right now!

When I go to the doctor and have to pull my pants down, I better have anal cancer or I'm not paying the bill!

Know what I mean?

Ok, your on potato duty buddy! lol

Thanks for helping!
