    since 2 days ago, the mouse arrow will suddenly freeze when i'm using the
    mouse, then the arrow will start shooting all over the screen, then all the
    open applications freeze.

    i'm on win98se, plenty of ram.
    never had this problem before.

    now when i boot, i often get error:
    'fatal exception has occurred at 0028:C0000000'

    the problem started almost immediately after i installed a hangman game. i
    uninstalled, but the problem persists.

    just in case, i did a full norton antivirus check, and came up clean.

    i've checked the plugs in the back of the cpu to make sure everything is
    tight, but that didn't help.

    help would be appreciated.

    This may require a more thorough install like all references to the game in
    the Registry.

    I'm sorry, I meant a more thorough "uninstall" instead of install. Good
    thing I re-check this post!

    so what i did was take another mouse, plug it into a different port.
    and hey i noticed the fan was clogged with dust (err a ton of dust).
    cleaned that out.
    the interior was much too hot.
    waited til everything cooled down.
    and it's working.
    thanks guys for your help :)
