Often when in Windows ME Explorer my mouse seems to have no effect and when
I click Ctl Alt Delete the message is "Explorer not responding".
Please help.
Thanks in advance.

This is often caused by having shortcuts present that refer to a
non-existent networked drive.

You may have a virus/spyware hijack

download the Stinger from here and run it to make sure that A-V-disabling
viruses are not present on your PC

- update your virus scanner and run a full system scan of all files.

Reboot to Safe Mode and run CWShredder - to remove variants of the
CoolWebSearch hijacker.

Use CWShredder, the removal tool:

(download it without the accompanying rubbish)

download AdAware SE Personal Edition from www.lavasoftusa.com, install,
update, and run it to remove spyware, adware, and other such nasties from
your system.

Brad,

You can download the latest version of Stinger (McAfee are changing its
name as it is being targeted by some malware) from
