I've had it..
Here's my dilemma (and I'm not a techie, so easy on the feedback)
I have Windows98
I have Grokster (it's a music downloading program) www.grokster.com
They forced me to download a new version (the old one would no longer connect me to their software).
So far so good... as soon as I got the download now I notice various ugly things... they incorporated myway, lycos, spyware, ads and all kinds of trash.. if that wasn't bad enough, my computer now is basically useless.
Whenever I turn on my computer I get various errors:
wupdater.exe seems to always be running
there's some file (i don't know what) that wants to immediately look for online connection. A window pops up asking me if i want to connect or work offline.
AOL doesn't work either. I can dial up ok, get connected and immediately get kicked off with a WAOL has performed an illegal operation.
I tried to uninstall the Grokster s/w using Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. I clicked on Grokster, click on uninstall. It will not remove the program.
Please any help... I did run Antivirus, but did not find any bugs at all.
I'm about to trash the computer...
