I recently, very recently bought a 350 Mhz puter off ebay with Win98 preloaded. The only thing i got was a tower. No cables, software. Now I got it up and running, installed my modem, but when ever i open an application for the first time, the computer freezes. The first time i opened: My Document, IE, AIM, and Outlook express, the somputer froze, but not the next times i ran those programs. The computer runs fine until i start some heavy multitasking and switching between programs. Now the computer has 256 MB of RAM so I don't think that is the problem. I am not going to do anything yet, maybe the bugs will work their way out. My thought is to reinstall Win98. I would jusst like some other ideas incase im missing anything. Is it a virus? Bad version of windows? My friend had the same problem on a similar machine.
Maybe it just to cold up here and my puter freezes ;-) Hope to hear from ya's ~Adam
