Hi There,

I am trying to clean-up a laptop for my brother, which I inherited from
work.
The laptop used to be a NETWORK laptop and has windows 95 (4.00.950.C) on
it.

The laptop itself is still pretty good and will fulfill my brothers needs
for now and my uncle used it for a little while, so I wanted it to clean it
up and prepare for my brothers purposes. However I have a few issues:

1. When I dial into Internet, using my own provider, it is verifying the
user id and password from work. I assume I can change this somewhere in the
Control panel?

2. I am not able to change the Home Page from Internet Explorer, this field
is protected. Where can I change this??

3. I tried to install Ad_aware 6.0 but I only get the Windows Installer and
then it stops... kind of frustrating...

4. An other program I ran tells me it can't empty the Recycle bin, since it
needs IE 4.0 or above, well as far as I can tell IE 5.0 is installed.


Any advice is appreciated!!

Ellen

probably more than one dialup is setup and the wrong one is default

that is usually (someone will correct me if i'm wrong :> ) because a
resident program has it locked or malware has taken over

do you know if spybot or something like that is installed ?

try a "repair" on IE ...control panel >add/remove progams > select IE
(whatever version) and choose the "repair" option

this may impact # 2,3 and hopefully #4

good luck :>

In order to install Ad-Aware and most other anti-spyware apps on Windows 95, you
need to first install the Winsock 2 Update, and Visual Basic 6.0 Run-time libraries.

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/windows95/downloads/default.as...
for the Winsock 2 Update for Win 95, and the Year 2000 Update for Winsock 2.

Winsock 2:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows95/downloads/contents/W...

Read all the info on the web page, and all the links.
Also linked on that page, under Recommended Updates- Networking, is the Year 2000
Update for Winsock2, which must be installed afterwards:

Microsoft DUN 1.3 and Winsock2 Year 2000 Update
http://www.microsoft.com/windows95/downloads/contents/W...

For Visual Basic 6.0 Run-times, click the link in this MSKB article -
VBRun60sp6.exe installs Visual Basic 6.0 SP6 run-time files:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=290887

Here are some sites to help with your spyware problems:

Update your anti-virus app and then run a full-system virus scan.

Use CWShredder, the CoolWeb removal tool, available here:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloads31.html
http://aumha.org/downloads/cwshredder.zip
Close all browser windows and open apps, start CWShredder and click the Fix button.

Install Ad-Aware SE free edition, start it, click its 'Check for
Updates' link in the app to install updates, then use it to scan your system, and
remove what it finds.

Thanks Haggis, I sure will, once scan disk has finished and the Defragment.

I noticed that malware was installed, by using JV16 Powertools, since I
found Gator, Precious time and Data Manager... Some people have a touch for
this stuff.

Keep you posted!

Hi there,

it is me again.

I checked the dial-up connection as suggested and it looked fine to me, but
removed/deleted any additional ones which were not needed.

I also changed something in the settings of Control Panel/passwords and
"repaired" Internet Explorer.

Results was after reboot, I only get eh "windows" password request and with
cancel I can continue. If I am correct, I am not able to disable this
password window.

When I do dial in now, the verification for the network is gone, so that is
cool. However I still am not able to access the internet option for
changing the home page, since it still is "protected' somehow. Any advice
in this matter is welcome.

I was not able to install Ad-Aware SE or 6.0 so after various attempts, I
burned my C:\programs files\ lavasoft folder to CD (from my own Laptop) and
then copied it to the W95 environment and guess what, this worked. I
submitted it and spyware was found, which I removed. I submitted Ad-Aware
again in safe mode and did various scans but all turned up clean, so that is
good.

I wanted to install Norton 2003 but version 2003 and w95 are not close, so
decided to install AVG Anti-virus (free edition) and after downloading the
latest updates, I scanned the laptop and no viruses where found, so that is
good. I also installed Spywareguard and blaster and I will continue to
clean-up some more tomorrow.

Thanks for your help so far and any tips in relation to the homepage setting
are appreciated!

Best Regards,
Ellen

Hi Glee,

I did, since I read that as well at the Lavasoft site, but not all links
worked, so I believe I only ended up with the Winsock 2.
I installed some of the other suggestions as well, which you suggested
below, like spywareblaster & guard. CWShredder..

I will check out the other links tomorrow, it is late here and I am very
tired!

Best Regards,
Ellen

Hi Glee,

I had a look at StartPage Guard and correct me if I am wrong, but it sounds
a little like Spywareguard / Blaster... Can you advise me why I would go
for Startpage Guard instead?

Maybe since the warning message displayed is much more user friendly as far
as I can tell...

Thanks for letting me know!

Best regards,
Ellen

The main purpose of StartPage Guard is to protect you start page from being changed
without your knowledge. SpywareBlaster does not act in that way. SpywareGuard's
Browser Hijack Protection feature *may* perform that function, but since I don't use
SpywareGuard, I can't say for sure. Try it and see.....if it does, then you
wouldn't need StartPage Guard also. In fact, if they both perform the same
function, they could start interfering with each other. Let us know! :-)

You don't want to always click cancel. You need to get rid of any old log-ons and
passwords, then create a logon for the new user, and set a blank password so you
don't have to see the logon window every time you start or restart the computer.

You can clear the password and create a new one, this way:
Start the computer.
If the log-on box comes up to type in a user name and password, click Cancel.
Click Start> Find> Files or Folders, choose the C: drive in the 'Look In' box, and
in the 'Named' box, type: *.pwl
Click Find Now.

In the list of found files, right-click each file, and then click Delete. Repeat
until all of the .pwl files are deleted.
Close the Find box.
Restart the computer.

Log in as what ever name you want to create, leave the password box blank, and click
OK...NOT Cancel.
If it asks to confirm the password, leave it blank again and click OK.

Afterwards, to find any desktop items or Start Menu items that you may not see, open
Windows Explorer, expand the C:\Windows\Profiles folder tree, and drag needed items
from the Start Menu and desktop subfolders for the profiles(s), to the
C:\Windows\Start Menu folder tree, and the C:\Windows\Desktop folder.

And Glen, did I wake you?? ~Big Smile~ Since I slept like a BABY.

I checked the registry and after following the instructions, I am able to
access the Home-page area again YIPPPEEEEEEEEEE

After installing Winsock, etc... I still was not able to install Ad-Aware,
but maybe this has to do with the fact, it officially is not made for W95???
Anyways, I still have it running, as I told in previous emails.

All other problems/questions asked/found seem to be resolved as well
(Problem with the program in relation to cleaning the recycle bin was I
think due to to fact this program was not written for W95, so I installed
Internet Sweeper again, which I know does it's job).

Thanks for your help and your patience!!

Best Regards,
Ellen

Hi Glen,

Spywareguard tells me when for example my IE Home page or IE search gets
changed and ask me if I like to keep the new value or the old one.
I love to try new programs, but they need to be usefull, in the sense that I
do not have a few of the same type of programs, since I do not want to get
lost in them, if you know what I mean.

But you might like this little program StartupMonitor
(http://www.mlin.net/StartupMonitor.shtml) It does what it say, at least in
XP.
For W95 it will not work correctly however!

Best Regards,
Ellen

Yep, no need for both of them, then. I have seen Mike Lin's StartUp Monitor, though
I don't use it....it does not work in Win95, but it does in 98 and above. I do have
his StartUp Control Panel, which *does* work in Win95, along with Brad Stower's
StartUp Manager....both available on this page:

Hi Glen,

Thanks for this info. I managed to get "rid" of the password, somehow...
There was still a lot related to the Netowork passwords in the settings.

I also uninstalled a "Client Access" program used for accessing the various
AS400's via the network. and after the reboot, I am getting an Illegal
Error on Internet Explorer. So I did do again ?start/settings/control panel
and "repaired" the Internet version, which did not solve the problem.
"Funny" thing is if I open IE the second time, it opens fine.... I have not
dialed in yet, but somehow by changing the Setting or by removing the Client
Access program, I messed up IE. :( 

Oh well.... I am sure you have a ling for me.... ~Smile~

Ellen

You wrote in your other post that the error was Explorer caused an invalid page
fault in module <unknown>.
See if this applies:
Error Message Starting Browser Program with Damaged Go!Zilla Installation:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=249248

Are you sure that is Explorer, and not Iexplore?
Error Message: Iexplore caused an invalid page fault in module Unknown with SaveNow
or New.net Client installed:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=302463

If those programs or malware are not involved, and if you correctly uninstalled the
Client Access app through Add\Remove Programs, you might want to just start over
with all the connectivity-related modules. IOW, uninstall ALL unneeded programs,
and all unneeded network clients, protocols and services. If you have the Windows
CD for the machine, or the setup (.cab) files on the hard drive, then you can remove
and reinstall ALL the components in Network control panel, along with uninstalling
and then re-installing DialUp Networking through Add\Remove Programs> Windows Setup
tab. Basically clean house on all the connectivity-related installations, and start
fresh with them. Then reinstall Internet Explorer....preferably IE5.5 SP2, the
latest version you can use on Windows 95.

An alternative to reinstalling DUN from Windows setup tab is to download and install
DUN 1.4 for Windows 95:
Dial-Up Networking 1.4 Upgrade Is Available:
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=kb;en-us;285189

Since you mentioned (I think) that there were still a lot of network logon items
showing up somewhere, starting fresh with those components might be best.
Obviously, you are limited in what you can remove and reinstall if you don't have
the CD, or the setup .cabs on the hard drive.

Thanks Glen,

yes, it states EXPLORER and not IExplorer. So I guess this means it is
related to Windows Explorer??

I submitted Ad-aware again, since you talked about malware in your reply and
it found again some spyware (Interesting, since I have not been on the
network since I submitted it yesterday) and well . I removed this before
via Ad-aware, but it seems to be stubborn. I read however it can be
re-installed by repairing IE --> http://www.imilly.com/alexa.htm. Anyway,
removing this, did not solve the problem!

Last night while not being to sleep I wondered if it was not part of the
start-up process producing this error.??
I also have a "BrowserWebCheck" in the start up Section.

I never installed Windows, so do not really dare to go there if I do not
have the CD's...
I found a Setupw95.cab file and a Setupnt.cab file. on the hard drive... I
can slap myself, you know that!!

It worked all fine yesterday.. ~Crying~

Ellen

Okay, I have this habit of not giving up!

I decided to change one setting back and well:
- Start/settings/control panel/passwords
- Tab User Profiles ----> Users can customize their preferences.... and
enable both options below it.

This was how it was before. Now after the reboot, I do get the Password
question again, but the Explorer Invalid error is gone

Some tabs also disappeared in the Password program, but I guess that is due
to the setting change.

For now I will leave the password there, my brother just needs to press
cancel and the process will continue.

Cheers,
Ellen

You may just have to be happy with what you can get. Apparently there are multiple
user profiles set up, each with its own settings, start menu, program groups, and
desktop. By clicking Cancel at logon, you are not logging in, and are using the
default desktop and menu. This will work, and may be all you need for your brother
to use it, especially if you don't want top spend an inordinate amount of time
messing with it.

Normally, one would just wipe everything out and do a fresh install, with an adopted
computer like this, but since you don't have the CD that is not an option....plus,
as it is a laptop, that method could prove disastrous. Laptops can have their own
special versions of Windows and special drivers, so that wiping everything out could
destroy the computer altogether. Obviously, this is not what you want to do!

This article describes one process you can use, but it may just bring back the
Explorer error you had before:

Hi Glen,

I like challenges, but I know the laptop works right now and is pretty
clean, so I am not going to tempt fate, specially since my brother will come
by tomorrow to pick it up.

I have a laptop myself, and next time I buy one (since I prefer a laptop
above a Desktop somehow), I want to have more info on how being able to
re-install the windows version from scratch (also since I have learned more
about it in the last 2 years), since when you buy one here, everything is
installed and often the Windows version CD's are not included. Thank god I
never needed to go this route, but I am just very curious how to install it
from scratch. (Of course I can go back to the store and have them do it and
pay 40 USD for it).

My brother should be able to use the laptop now for the purpose he wants to
use it, if not, my mom can use it.
The laptop is good and works perfectly as it is now. You just need to know
what to do where, during start up. Nothing new.

Thanks for all your help and patience!

Best regards and have a great weekend!

Ellen
