Memory access violation Win98
I just started receiving this message on boot-up:
Memory access violation in 6897:69873871 module kernel32
This happened and I rebooted using "restart" and it happened again. It did not affect operation, at least not yet. Bootup was completed and I was able to access programs and get on the net to post this.
I am running win98 with all updates, 256 Meg Ram, AMD K63/450 Mhz. The ram was recently upgraded, using 1 stick of Crucial memory. Tyan Mobo 1598. I keep the computer cleaned up pretty well (AVG, Popup stopper, Zonealarm, and AdAware), and it stays on nearly 24/7, as it is also fax/answering machine as well as ADSL internet.
How did this get thru???
OH well, I notice that Zone alarm isn't loading and when I call up AVG antivirus, either from desktop or from program list, I get the same error messages but different long number.
How do I re-load the win 98 safely? do I delete Win 98 in control panel first, do I have to reformat, can I save document files, etc?
The memory access error will not let me run the download, either directly or after saving to disk
Ol tunz...can I safely backup document directories, etc., to a CDRW without danger of the virus?
I would do it in any case. Once you are immunized, you can always scan them later before restoring from them.
Can you not run that tool from a floppy?
EDIT: Be sure to label that CDRW as a possible virus source.

You might have better luck with the Panda tool.
Better yet, try the Panda Active Scan. It will not only detect but will also remove the virus.

Panda active scan did the trick! Thank you so much... Have a nice weekend
