‡‡Please print out or copy this page to Notepad since you will can not have any of browsers open while you are fixing this and try to follow it as closely as possible taking it step by step.

‡‡I would suggest though that you download CCleaner. It is a great little program that I use every time I close my browser to get rid of temporary files. I usually just run the cleaner part every time I'm done with the browser.During the install there will be check marks for checking for updates that part I do not use and also to install a tool bar for yahoo or something. Make sure those are unchecked unless you want another tool bar, It is a very safe program and it is free.(CCleaner Quick Setup: Go to > Options > Advanced > Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours" for cleaning malware. files!)

http://www.ccleaner.com/

May I add this to the post by Inferno...? Fix these entries using hijackthis:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [outlook] \outlook\outlook.exe /auto
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Intel Driver] CSRS.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Intel Driver] CSRS.EXE
O4 - .DEFAULT Startup: PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe (User 'Default user')
O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe
O24 - Desktop Component 0: (no name) - (no file)

Good. Now delete this file:
CSRS.EXE - it is dropped by a worm.
and this file and folder:
\outlook\outlook.exe
... I think you will find them in Windows\ or Windows\system32\.
I don't know anything about Windows 98 so I cannot recommend any scans. It was before my time.....
