I really need some help here with my comp. i am trying to fix it myself as i have no money to buy a new one or get this one repaired by a professional. I have Windows 98

1. Computer freezes up constantly. Is very slow.
2. I have the following running in task manager and can't stop these processes: admanctl, adman keep.
3. Popups

I have run spybot and adaware,(they will only run in safemode) and pandasoft av. .
Could someone please help me out here, I am not very computer literate but can follow simple directions. Thank you.

Hi kchaopao :thumbsup:

Maybe you should consider posting a Highjack This Log. This link will take you to the HJT Forum. Please read the pinned topics at the top. There you will learn all that you need to know regarding the the posting of your log. Good Luck! :trumpet:


Just please keep in mind that all Highjack This Team Members are volunteers. One must practice a little patience, when waiting for help. I promise you though that they will get to you as soon as they are able. :flowers:

And above all do not attempt to work on your log yourself. And only take the advice from an official HJT Team Member. Which will show under thier name and avatar.

One more thing. Do not reply to your own post. As the Team keeps an eye out for zero replies. If they see a reply they will assume that someone is already helping you out. Then I'm afraid that you may get lost in the shuffle.

Hi .
Try booting into safe mode. Goto START/RUN/ type in MSCONFIG. go to the START TAB and uncheck all items. Then reboot back into SAFE MODE run AdwareSE, then Spybot S&D 1.3 and my favorite AVG 7.0 (www.grisoft.com).
I have used this on several 98 boxes with success. Hope this helps
