Windows98 SE

The actual error messages I am getting are like these

I keep getting a blue screen saying: "Fatal exception has occured" etc.

I frequently recieve the message: "Windows is running dangerously low on resources"

Often when I try to run a new program I get "Cannot open program. Not enough free memory" I get this message even when I'm not running anything that would be too taxing on memory.

big white rectangle keeps popping up saying I am dangerously low on memory and wants me to close programs etc and when it does that nothing will open like exe is not working, it doesn't even show anything in the start menu when it happens. WORD won't open or anything else.

But when I run everesthome it says theres 256 RAM and that 167 is being used and 88 is free so whats the deal?

If I go into safemode then evereything works ok and even word will open.
I ran spybot its clean
ran adware and caught some stuff cleaned it
have spyblaster, iespyad, scriptdefender
Norton antiviurs

sometimes if you just restart it then all of a sudden it starts working good except for WORD
anyone got any ideas, could it be the memory even tho there is that much left? and with that much left would n't it still at least open programs? hERE IS THE HJT LOG

For the message Windows is running dangerously low on resources, try this, it has worked for me before.
Search for a file or files on your hard drive named Normal.dot delete any you find then reboot and
see if that solves the problem.

Normal.dot is a Word template. You can either leave the deleted normal.dot in your recycle bin until you see if it solves the problem or you can rename it to OldNormal.dot and see if it helps.

Yea, I was going to do that but then everything started working again. thats why I was trying to get an answer on the power supply cause that is the only thing left really,
antivirus is clean
spybot is clean
adware is clean
spysweeper clean
ie-spyad
scriptdefender
ran cleanup for all temps, cookies, history
reset the memory
I guess I wanted someone to confirm that a power supply on its way out could make it run the way it is, things not opening at all, freezing up, open the start menu and nothing there, then turn it off let it sit awhile and it might be ok for awhile,

and like I said the power supply tester reads that it is bad even tho it starts the computer and runs it sometimes. would a power supply on its way out act like that?
