PC Specs: HP Pavilion WIN98 SE 4.10.2222A, 384 MB RAM
I recently got my old WIN98 running again after I reinstalled the operating system. I'm sure the system is infected, but I am unable to run any virus scans because I get an error message that system performed an illegal operation and will close.
I've tried Windows Update and get error (0x80072F89). Then I tried to install Spotmau's Powersuite 2010 in hopes of straightening out my system, but I get "Error Starting Program, the C:\Program Files\Spotmau\Spotmau.exe file expects a newer version of Windows. Upgrade your Windows version". Then a second error message pops up saying "C:\Program Files\Spotmau\Spotmau.exe. A device attached to the system is not functioning" I even went to softwarepatch.com to download Driver Detective, but get error msg it performed an illegal operation and closes.
I was able to use HJT to do a system scan and have pasted a copy of the log below. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
