Posted on 2004-03-27
Alittle while ago I had a little problem with a virus or I toughr my troubles we because of the blaster virus. I deleted it but found that some of my periferals stopped working ie: printer scanner etc. Try as I might nothing seemed to get my system Win 98 to recognise these extras. As well as frequent stack dump errors and shutdowns of explorer. I gave up after reloading the OS (over the top) which didn't help and reformatted the hard drive and reloaded the os as a clean install everything when fine till I got to loading my Nortons Anti virus again and it all crashed. I have got to this point a number of times and same result. Have reformatted and reloaded OS again now I can only get to a green or blue screen sometimes nothing else happens. I thought maybe it was the hard-drive so substuted a working harddrive with Win 98 installed found all hardware loaded up beautifully until I try to open anything activer desktop crashes and explorer starts the stack dump errors again and closes. This was a clean harddrive with a working OS. WHY WHY WHY. At wits end one more alt ctrl del and i'll del the thing permently. HELP. Greg
