everything was going fine with my newly acquired dial-up connection, until this morning when i first turned the computer on. i got an error message and it asked if i wanted to send microsoft a report. i was not connected yet, so i was unable to send it. i clicked on the verizon icon to connect, and the screen went a dark blue. i waited a few minutes and decided that it may never change and hard killed by pushing the button in and holding it.

it is now working like nothing ever happened, but i thought it would be a good idea to have the hijackthis analyzed just in case. if it's clean i can store the log for future references. sorry i was unable to add it as an attachment, there was an error, i had to copy and paste it. i am wondering if all these errors couldn't be related to the slower dial-up connection.
i appreciate the analysis and the expert advice. Ed James

Looks clean to me.

You might wish to go into system informationand look for IRQ conflicts or other conflicts. Otherwise it's probably one of those one off gliotches that we all get from time to time and don't bother with.

i checked system information IRQ, and most of everything else that was there, and found nothing. everything was ok. when i return home tonight i will check it better. the fan turned on last night unexpectedly, so it may be overheating. i will also remove the cover and clear out the dust.
thanks for the analysis and advice. if anything else comes to mind, please give a hollar. Ed James

Yep, dust clearing is always a good thing to do. Also if you suspect overheating, buy another fan to put in, just 1 will make all the difference. They are quite cheap to pick up from most computer stores, Maplins is a good place to start i believe. Or if you want to splash some cash, you could have a water-cooling system fitted, which will deffinatly put an end to any overheating issues.

Don't worry about it. You've probably never noticed the fan before.

Everyone's had something like that happening; you boot up and get an unexpected error; after that it's blue screen or something unpredictble. It's likely to be a one time glitch.

It won't hurt to be proactive and clear the dust out - but if it happens regularly then we have to look a bit deeper.
