I have a Macintosch Centris 610, 8MB, 1GB hard drive.  Virtual memory is on.

I have the following problems:

1. When I open the Schwab site, after  the inital download,and  shortly after I start requesting and getting specific information, I get a freeze-up.

2. Being online on chat lines, after about 15 minutes the application program (Netscape 3.01) closes by itself.

When I gnererally work the internet, the files are typically removed about 30 at a time, so there is never a problem if I use a number of sites.


Do you have any idea what my problem might be?  

Thank you.

You need:
more physical RAM...32Megs or more...virtual memory is nice, but there is no substitue for the real thing as it is accessed and moved around differently.
Drive Setup 1.3.1 (Apples formatting utility - download from ftp.info.apple.com)
System 7.5.5 (custom install - for any Macintosh)
QuickTime 2.5
OpenTransport 1.1.2 (an upgrade hassle...but necessary)
FreePPP 2.5v3

Note: Upgrading beyond System 7.6.1 is not advised for your machine.

Also...it should be noted that the internet is not very stable. There is always the possibility that you will land on a site where the webmaster has made a boo-boo in html, java, cgi, etc. code and that these boo-boos can cause your machine or internet applications to freeze, hang or bomb.

Your answer convinces me.  I will get a new G3 Mac and pass the current one to my wife.  Tx............
