Hi,

Just curious, when did you upgrade your IE browser to v6.00 SP1? I ask because in Windows 98 it can sometimes cause a memory problem that results in crashes.

Who is your Internet Service Provider(ISP)?

I'm curious about the sbcglobal.net entries in your log.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is the processor speed and how much RAM is in that computer?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Click Start - Find - Files And Folders, select the hard drive to look in, then delete EVERYTHING that appears under

C:\TEMP\*.*

C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.*


when you click Find.

my service provider is comcast and it use to be sbc, but I still use the toolbar and to answer the other question I upgraded because Microsoft stated that it was one of my "critical updates".

Did the crashes begin after you upgraded the browser? The problem usually starts after a large number of files get deleted, is that when you're noticing the crashes with the system completely freezing up?

Upgrading to Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 was a good idea because it's the most current version for Windows 98SE and has more enhancements and security-related fixes than the older versions.

Since you installed it, have you gone to the Windows updates site and installed all available critical updates?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The 2 - O17 entries may need to be fixed, but I'm not absolutely sure.

Let's see if someone else jumps in and advises otherwise.

Hi flavalee

There's a problem sometimes with the browser but it can be fixed without uninstalling it.

Very good, you did before editing the post. All we're doing is confusing the poster.

No the crashes started out of no where, nothing new was added and the upgrade for ie was awhile back. Yes I just went on microsoft update the other day and nothing has helped.

Have you deleted the files that I advised you to do, and were there a large number of them? A large buildup of temp/junk files can cause various problems, which is why it's good to delete them regularly and why I advised you to do so.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Click Tools - Internet Options - General(tab) Delete Files(button) - place a checkmark in "Delete all off-line content", then click OK.

Click Settings(button) - select "Every visit to the page" - set the MB to 80 for 56K dial-up or 20 for high-speed cable/DSL, then click Apply - OK.

Doing this will clean out the buildup of temporary internet files(TIF's) and will make sure that a fresh webpage is loading and will keep the TIF's from building up to too many MB's.

The only way to know for sure if the browser is the culprit is whether the crashes begin after deleting a large number of files. When you do that do you sometimes have a problem with Windows Explorer freezing up, that would be any folder where you have files stored??

Thanks for the link. I personally have never had a crashing/freezing problem with Windows 98SE and MIE 6.0 SP1. I disagree with the suggestion to revert back to MIE 5.5.

Windows ME comes with MIE 5.5, and I advise users to upgrade to MIE 6.0 SP1.
