Hi!
I really need someone who can help me fix all my problems because I can't even normally work on my PC.
Thanks in advance!

PC specifications:
 Windows 98 SE 4.10.2222 A
 256 Mb RAM
 12,7 Gb hard disk

Problems:
 Rundll32 not responding
 lots of unknown programs listed in the Task Manager
 can not open Control Panel
 can not perform Scan Disk and Defragment
 PC often freezes (cannot move mouse or use the keyboard, so I have to restart manually)
 can not open Microsoft Outlook Express (a message pops up saying that a MSOE.DLL could not be loaded)
 can not open large programs such as Dreamweaver or can’t do anything with them once they are opened

Programs installed:
 Ad-aware, SpyBot S&D, HijackThis, CWSchredder
 anti-virus program: McAfee Virus Scan + McAfee Firewall

Actions done so far:
 have scanned for spyware / malware with Ad-aware and SpyBot and removed everything that was found
 have used CWSchredder (it didn’t find anything)
 have performed the anti-virus check with McAfee (found some infected files – had removed them) and on the web with Housecall Trend Micro (didn’t find anything)
 uninstalled some programs that I don’t need or don’t use

Hi!

Glad to hear it looks good, but some problems that I had before did not go away. Only one thing is changed - rundll32.exe is now functioning normal. My PC is slow, can't open Control Panel, can't perform ScanDisk and Defragment. So it's obvious something else that is wrong with my PC.
If you maybe know what can I do next I would be very grateful. The problem that bothers me is that I think it's a virus (or sth similar) but none of the virus scans I've done showed I don't have a single file infected. :?:

Thanks for all your help! ;)
