I am operating on Windows 98 with wireless broadband via BT through a BT router that is working fine because the other computers in house use it fine (this post was sent by one of those computers).
I have had Broadband about 2 months, it was working fine but a couple of weeks ago refused to access any internet programs (tried internet explorer, outlook express, MSN and BT Yahoo! Broadband).
When I turn on the computer many error messages come up; the first one is that ssdpsrv has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. Then Rundll32.exe has a similar message.
It is followed by the startup programs that use the internet reporting similar errors (such as Ybrowser).
Then whenever i try to open any program that uses the internet in refuses to saying that it has performed an illegal operation. when I do that with Internet explorer it offers to send an error report to Microsoft but that fails because it won't connect to server (the first box- check status of problem is ticked then the window closes)
A month ago I tried to set up a network, but it failed because I didn't have the Windows 98 set up disc. Computer then worked fine but said that didn't have vserver.vsd that was mentioned in system.ini
Tried turning computer and router on and off didn't work.
Have no firewalls or antivirus programs so they aren't on. Ran Norton Antivirus 99 check. Nothing came up.
Hopefully someone can help either with what the actual problem is or hopefully (fingers crossed) what the solution is.
All help appreciated
If any more information is needed i'll provide what i can.
