PROGRAMS/APPLICATIONS CLOSE AFTER FEW S

When system POC's verify that the correct amt of RAM is display on the system BIOS screen. Next boot to command prompt only and CD to windows\temp and delete *.tmp files next cd \windows and delete win386.swp file becareful that you delete only these files. Next reboot into safe mode and run disk cleanup, scandisk and defrag while in safe mode. Reboot system and let it come up normally. Once at the desktop click start,programs,accessories,systemtools,system information and run a registry check, then run a system file check (have your 98 CD handy if you don't have the cabs copied to your HDD.) repair any files that you find corrupted. You can run sysedit and check environment varibles listed but only if symptoms started after installinga DOS application. If files= or buffers= is in the config.sys file ensure that they are files=255 buffers=60. But I really suspect a memory problem here if you have extra memory avail swap out the memory 1st and then run the utils listed.

I've had very similar problems with programs ceasing to operate due to the Klez virus. I downloaded the Klez cleaner tool from Symantec to fix this. You may have to reload the infected programs.
