Each time i try to access my internet cleanup programme a dialogue box comes up "this progrmme has performed an illegal operation and will close". It always used to work for me, why not now? Is it because i havent registered it online?
No worries about the program, it's probably the registry, you can try restoring the computer back to a date it was working OK by doing this;
If you start the computer and repeatedly press the F8 key until instead of loading Windows normally it will go to a 6 option DOS screen. Use the arrow keys to select COMMAND PROMPT ONLY, then type SCANREG/RESTORE and hit the enter key. Now you will see a list of the last five days when it booted satisfactorily. Choose a date just before things went wrong and hit enter.
I fyou are using AOL 8.0 on a Windows ME computer, don't expect Internet Cleanup to run. There is a conflict between ME, AOL and Internet Cleanup which makes it perform illegal operations every time you start the program.
Just a thought :P
