My wife installed yahoo spyware on our laptop and almost immediately after that we began receiving a notice at startup that services.exe could not be found. The computer continues to run but now crashes every 15 minutes or so. Does anyone know how to fix this, replace that file or ?

I think you can use a command to install a single file from it.
Someone here with more knowledge will be by shortly to help.

To me, it looks like you may have a malware issue. Personally, I would following steps 2 to 8 in the Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log

If you still have an issue after step 8, continue with the remaining steps to post a HiJackThis log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum.

At present, there are 86 unanswered logs, so you may have to wait a few days before one of our volunteer techs have a chance to log at it.

You can always come back here if you do not have a malware issue.

Good-luck.

There is no services.exe in a normal Windows 98 or Windows ME installation.

And using Yahoo to protect you from spyware is like using gasoline to put out a fire. I'd remove it and go with something that has better reputation.
