Problem with Loadqm

  Border View 10:09 25 Nov 2003

I run Windows 98SE with AVG anti-virus and Zone Alarm as my firewall. When I booted up this morning I got the message

Loadqm – This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persists contact the program vendor.

The details were – LOADQM caused a general protection fault in module USER.exe @ 0003:00000a5a.

Pressed to OK button and when I tried to go into Word got the BSOD with the message – A fatal exception OE has occurred at 0028:C003E8C The current application will be terminated.

The whole system then froze and when I Cnt.Alt.Dlt noticed that Zone Alarm was not responding. I then had to press the restart button to get anywhere.

Can anyone please advise what went wrong and if there are any steps I should take to stop this happening again. I seem to remember the Loadqm think happened about a month ago.

Your help and reassurance would be appreciated.

Had trouble with original PC and eliminating loadQM seemed to solve it. Never got round to following the MS instructions as they seemed beyond an eternal beginner's grasp so saved the instructions for my son to complete- which he dodged- but it didn't seem to matter and, never using Windows automatic update, I was much better off without the beast. It is sitting on new PC and behaving itself so maybe it all depends on the config.

Sorry I've just got back to you. Many thanks for your responses. I have vague recollections that sometime in the past I went into misconfig and unticked loadqm in the start up.
Somehow it's returned.

I don't usually use Windows automatic update. Although I do sometimes use a Hotmail account.

Think I shall go and untick it and see how I can on.

Again many thanks for responding.
