whenever I switch on the computer, an error message box comes up which is titled
'http://page error 404 and instructs Reload page error

then an ms dos window comes up with the title Winsta0\Default

then a web page tries to load in ie which is.. http://xlogin.net.firms.com/mail.html

then an error message comes up titled ' 16 bit MS-Dos subsystem' which in a box has
Winsta0\Default
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction
CS:OdbfIP:00ld OP: ff ff ff ff ff ff Chose 'close' to terminate the application

then the dial up connection box comes up
(I generally close it and close all the boxes)

then you can work as normal - but occasionally when you are on line it comes up again

Is the xlogin.net.firms.com location at all familiar to you? If not, the errors might be the result of virus/spyware infection; error messages similar to yours seem to be linked to those nasties in some cases. I'd make sure your anti-virus program's virus definitions are absolutely up-to-date and run a full system scan. You might also want to read through many of threads in our Security forum to find out what a wide range of problems trojans, spyware, and other malicious programs can cause. Many of the threads in Security also describe how to install and use some well-recommended (and free) tools to detect and remove the pests.

Move on over to the Security Fourm ,
And after that, please do the following:


Download 'Hijack This!'.HERE
Download link is on the left

Unzip (extract) it to a folder of its own.Like c:\HJT\hijackthis.exe , Then Doubleclick HijackThis.exe (in the new folder), and hit "Scan".
When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, then Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. for hijackthis,most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

reboot computer and post a new hijackthis log
