I offer NO solution. But before you exit this post I do note that I did fix one up by using the Optimizing Windows article at http://www.aumha.org/articles.htm The reason they had an issue was this old windows has just 64 KILOBYTES for resources in spite and any memory added. This is explained in the memory article.

The second issue is spyware. It is wrecking havoc across the PC landscape. In short, you can't allow it on your machine.
