I have windows 98, on startup it takes forever to load. Same when I click on aol. When I go to web sites my hard drive runs for about a minute or so befor it settles down. Same when I click on something to view. I also get about blank and hotwire popup's. On my default I click off the about blank but it comes back. How do I tell if my hard drive is going bad? How do I know if I have a virus or spyware? I am new to the computer world. I am using a 33 modem and 32 bit memory. Computer is about 7 years old. I cleaned all temp files and defraged but still runs slow. Please help, thanks Here is my Hij log:
