I'm having problems opening icons from the desktop.

if I try to open 'my computer' or 'internet explorer', it dislpays error opening IE.

I've tried installing IE6 from one the PCAd disks but that didn't help. I've upgraded to W98SE but no joy.

Can anyone suggest something without having to reload OS.

Thanks

Try running sfc 1st: RUN/ type sfc and replace system files (ALL changed files will show) from os disc.

BTW reinstallig 98se over itself doesn't lose data or progs, just settings ad updates.

"dislpays error opening IE"

And whats that error then?? It might tell us something... (bet this is CoolWeb)

The error is vx2.dll is faulty.
I've run sfc but didn't help much.

Please someone help

try IE repair (sometimes works) Add/remove, IE, click delete and click repair.

If no go you can revert to earlier version. I went back to 5.5 with 98se and no probs.

vx2.dll belongs to several spyware programs, click here Get Spybot search and destroy click here
download, install and UPDATE before running then allow it to fix all items in RED.

Put your Win98 in comp stop it running, then go start\run type SFC and run the program

I've loaded spywareblaster but I can't run it because it errors and says MSVBVM60.DLL not found.

How can I recover this and get spyware running.

Go here download the .dll put it in your system folder reboot and it should work.Read the insturction on page where to put the dll file think it windows system folder but on some OS it the system32 folder.
