Operaing system is ME. Quite often when I am connected with AOL to the internet my computer crashes and I have to reboot and wait for Disc C to be checked. Anybody have any ideas.

A few options to try:

run disk defragmenter

get a registry checker - eg the one from Microsoft

clear temporary internet files

go to windowsupdate.com and ensure you have the latest updates

Did anyone else have an idea that worked?

blaster?

I think blaster only affects xp and 2000!
one thing to do though is cancel the scan disk upon restarting, that should save you 10 mins loading up.

The small program above, run it and it will remove the virus from your machine.

Does it only crash when connected to AOL? How long typically is it on before it crashes?
