Hi,

I have just installed Internet Connection sharing. My Windows XP is the host (server) connected by DSL to the internet. My laptop is the client. The two computers can see each other, file sharing, printer sharing, pinging all work. Buts the ICS Client on the Windows 98SE computer fails to start since the icsdclt.dll wont start due to rundll32.exe crashing. I have tried to start it by using the communications tab in the program menu but it ends with rundll.exe doing an illegal ops. Any ideas on how to fix this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Dev

Have you tried cleaning out spyware and making sure no 3rd party programs are starting on bootup. Sounds like a possible software conflict. You can use hijackthis and report the log here and i'll be glad to look at it and tell you what to remove

If rundll32.exe is crashing then I would normally recommend run the system file checker included in win98. You can run this by going to start, run, type in sfc and press ok. Get it to check all the files on the computer and replace any corrupted ones and see what happens...

Regards,

Jacob

Well most of your programs seem to be 3rd party things you have installed and want.
Is it possible for you to Uninstall "Panda Platinum Internet Security" and test your problem with that program not running? It seems that there are several refrences to it. Along with "FreeMem Pro" , "Startup Guard" , and "wait4ip" All these can cause software conflicts and if you possibly can uninstall them (and have the program to reinstall) That would be a great step in troubleshooting this problem . I had noticed several refrences in the HOSTS file also. Did you put those there or do you know why they were added? They don't seem like a threat for any reason since they seem to to be correct.

If you do have the install files then I would Uninstall all of those in Add/Remove programs then run hijackthis again and see if any refrences are still there (u can post another log i'll point out exaclty what to remove once they're uninstalled) and we can test your ICS. If it works we know thats the issue and u can install 1 at a time and test it to see which was the culprit. That would be where I would start. Sorry I'm not posting what to remove yet but if you do remove some and try to uninstall any of those it could cause a problem. I'll be waiting for a response
