Ok Mike,
It seemed as though my computer problems started around a
month or so ago after I deleted some Java system files.
The problem seemed to get much worse over the past week or
so.

My biggest problem at this point is that my computer
continually freezes up while I am online. It usually
happens when I am trying to move to a new location.

I get many error "boxes".
1. "WJ view "system could not find file"
This pops up every time I start my computer.

2. "DW caused an error in DW.EXE. DW will now close"
Also every time I start up.

3. "/explore error in USER.EXE."


I ran updated virus check and my computer looks clean??
Noel recommended I download adaware.
I did that and quarintened many files, but without change
after restarting computer.

What do you guys recommend I do???

Thanks for all your help
Shan

Could just be!!

dw.exe = DownloadWare = Parasite!!

See: http://www.yqcomputer.com/
for description, symptoms, (especially stability problems) and removal
instructions.

Good luck <g>

ave a look at this lot while you wait for one of the guru's there's quite
a lot for you to read.

1) WJ view
You need to scan your system for parasites :
Do You Have Parasites ?
http://www.aumha.org/a/noads.htm

If you find that you do download and install AdAware:
http://lavasoftusa.com

Open AdAware ... Read the Help file to configure it to best scan your
system. Click on the globe icon to download and install the latest
definition files. Then scan your system . You may or may not be told
that some files were in use and AdAware needs the system rebooted and
will run on startup ... if this is not the case advise you to reboot the
system and run AdAware again.

Info on parasites and how to prevent them can be found here :
