MOTIVEDIRECTORY - WHAT IS IT?

Almost every time I reboot (Windows 98SE) I will get an error message saying
the 'motivedirectory' has caused an error, and when I check it usually is a
page fault and them a stack dump. Usually I can ignore this error and I do,
but every so often when this error comes up, nothing loads and I have to
reboot and I probably will get the same error, or maybe not, and then maybe
this time, if I get it, nothing is affected and I can load any program with
no ill effects.

What is the 'motivedirectory,' and what, if anything can I do to fix this
annoying error?

You have spyware on your computer.

I check under the 'Find' for this file and it confirms what the Google
search did, this is part of the HP Printer files and there are two parts to
this, a Motivedirectory and its associated 'log,' but still I haven't
figured out what it takes to fix the problem.

Start by disconnecting your printer.

Uninstall the HP software, reboot, reinstall the software - connecting the
printer if prompted. Reboot - verify.

check http://www.lavasoft.de/default.shtml.en and download the free
version of ad-aware and see if it will remove it if it is spyware or
adware.

It's not spyware or adware. It is part of the HP Printer files that were
installed when I installed my HP 1210 all-in-one printer about a year ago.
The file has only been acting up since late summer. What I think will fix
it is to uninstall and then reinstall the software.

This is on my pc as well. In my case, it was installed with my Verizon
dsl software as an intelligent, self-help diagnostic program. This
press release explains the partnership between Verizon & Motive
Communications, Inc.:

HP is also one of Motive Communications many partners:

So you're on the right track; its legitimate software that messed up.
