I have a Gateway computer with windows ME and a pentium 4. I had problems getting spywareblaster to install. I posted on the Spyware Warrior Hijack this Log forum and they referred me to this forum. They checked my log and said I had no spyware. (see the entry in Hijack this log from calvinnhobbs in Spyware Warrior-Hijack this log forum) In the SWB forum I found the posts in the forum about the interaction with the modem BCM V 90 modem on my gateway. (I got the same error message described in the posts referring to the modem) I followed the instructions to uninstall the modem, then install Spywareblaster, and change the file name on BCMDMCCP.vxd to BCMDMCCP.vxd.ccp and was able to install spywareblaster. Everything seemed fine. I then uninstalled Zonealarm using System Suite 5 uninstaller. I prefer the firewall from System Suite 5 and also use their antivirus protection. Now when I access the internet with IE, I can get on and surf around the net, but if I disconnect from the internet, the second time I try to access the internet, my computer freezes. I try to use alt, ctrl, del to end the lockup but nothing works. I ultimately have to cut power to the computer (at the surge protector-outlet plug) and restart the computer after plugging the power back in. I tried reinstalling zonealarm. uninstalling SWG and SWB. uninstalling modem. reinstalling the modem, SWG, and SWB. Scan for virus negative. Scan for spyware with Spybot and Adaware SE negative. System suite 5 check for hardrive errors negative. I tried restoring to settings from one month earlier without success. I never had a problem like this until I downloaded SWB. It seems like the problem has to do with redirecting the computer back to the internet after logging off the internet and some confusion with the modem (although I no longer get the BCM.....modem error message) I have a cable internet connection. The other computers in the house with the same shared cable access don't have any trouble logging on and off the internet. The most recent error messages have been: 1)spyware guard runtime error 429, active X component can't create object 2) Win32Kernel core component is trying to connect to 192.168.1.1 File C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\KERNEL32.dll VERSION 4.90.3000 process ID OxFFCFF163 Also I see a new desktop icon "MXUI shell" that I hadn't noticed before. I will download the fix for the runtime error described in earlier posts for SWG. Any suggestions?
