I've been running win98 for 3-4 weeks now, and am amazed how much it crashes. Why is this? I've got sufficient resources, PII 266, 64M ram, etc. It will just freeze, and then needs to be reset.

Go to DOS, C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND type, scanreg/FIX at the DOS prompt. now, the problem should be gone.

It may not be a registry problem. Are you running programs when it crashes? Is it a specific program that is running when it crashes? When windows crashes does it completely lock up, do you get the blue screen of death, anything? More info would be helpful.

I have done as Istal suggests - I'll just have to see if it works. I'll rate it good for it's clarity and promptness, but I'll have to see how win98 runs now. Demarb: Yesterday it froze in the middle of a Word seession, other times with Windows Outlook (here I re-installed Outlook, and that helped), but it's been freezing several times a day with no particular (as far as I can see) pattern. No blue screens, just freezes, and usually the ctrl-alt-del won't make it budge.

Anyway, thanks you guys, for being there so promptly!
