When I double click on any folder or my computer on the desktop or
right click start then explore the following error pops up twice. I
click close twice to get rid of the error message then the folder
opens. When I open the same folders through explorer this doesn't
happen. I'm also getting some hangs/hourglass when starting IE or
right clicking the start button. Yesterday I removed istbar spyware
and re-scanned several times and it appears to be clean now. The
spyware also created a few registry entries, which were removed, so I
wonder if something is wrong with the registry. This PC has Win98SE.

You may need new video drivers. Check the website of your video board or
computer manufacturer. Meanwhile, you can do the following:

1. Use the default mouse pointers.

2. Turn down your color depth. (Right click the desktop and choose
Properties | Appearance | Settings) Some people find that increasing color
depth helps.

3. Turn down your graphics hardware acceleration. (Start | Settings |
Control Panel | System | Performance | Graphics button) You will see
little, if any, performance degradation.

4. Turn off your desktop wallpaper.

If these make the problem go away you need new video drivers.

Also check your system for "hijackware":

Also update your virus definitions and then run a full system scan. From
now on, do both daily.

This type of eerror is often due to malware. What program, if any, did you use to
remove ISTbar?
Info about ISTbar and removal instructions are here:
http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/adware.istba...

Symantec also makes an ISTbar removal tool:
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/FxIstbar....

Download the tool, close all open programs and Explorer windows, then run the tool.
When it is done:
Click Start> Settings> Control Panel
Select Internet Options
Select the Programs tab
Click Reset Web Settings
Click OK

ISTbar may have also brought in other malware. What program and what anti-virus are
you using? Is the A-V up-to-date?

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/download3019.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 Personal 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.
Ad-Aware:

http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html

Install SpywareBlaster:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download2859.html
Click the link in the app to check for and install updates, then click to 'Enable
all protection'.
Update at least weekly.
