Windows 98 When logging off Yahoo chat group my system froze (cursor arrow and hourglass icon showing). cursor & hourglass remained no matter what I did..even con/alt/delete & hitting end task button would not get response. Only way I could stop it was to press physical button on my housing case to reboot. Even with rebooting the cursor arrow & hourglass still on screen once complete window screen was visible. In other words I could not reboot; I even tried cold reboot. Only way was to boot into safe mode which was successful. Did a windows system maintenance & it did some repair which fixed the problem, whatever it was, Out of curiosity I ran msconfig and discovered a new entry to the startup menu; new item was called GREMLIN and was location was given as c:\windows\system\intrenat.exe What is intrenat.exe (this is not a typo...it is not internet.exe)? GREMLIN was checked , so I unchecked it & rebooted with no prob. Although unchecked, it is still on the startup menu. What was and is this all about? =20 In addition to av I have spotbot software and Zone Alarm firewall on my machine.
