try installing the service pack or latest version of ie (ie 6).
Do you use any ASUS card. If you do, try reinstalling the driver.
win98 does NOT like more than 512 MB RAM !
  Q197739 Description of the Different Advanced Power Management States
Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition
      Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition
      Microsoft Windows 98
      Microsoft Windows 95
From: CrazyOne   Date: 02/28/2001 12:39PM PST
                   If a computer that is running any of the versions of Windows listed above contains more than 512 megabytes

                   (for example, 768 megabytes) of physical memory (RAM) installed, you may experience one or more of the
                   following symptoms:

                   You may be unable to open an MS-DOS session (or command prompt) while Windows is running. Attempts to
                   do so may generate the following error message:

                   There is not enough memory available to run this program.
                   Quit one or more programs, and then try again.
                   The computer may stop responding (hang) while Windows is starting, or halt and display the following
                   error message:

                   Insufficient memory to initialize windows. Quit one or more memory-resident programs or remove unnecessary
                   utilities from your Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files, and restart your computer.


                   The Windows 32-bit protected-mode cache driver (Vcache) determines the maximum cache size based on the
                   amount of RAM that is present when Windows starts. Vcache then reserves enough memory addresses to permit
                   it to access a cache of the maximum size so that it can increase the cache to that size if needed. These
                   addresses are allocated in a range of virtual addresses from 0xC0000000 through 0xFFFFFFFF (3 to 4 gigabytes)
                   known as the system arena.

                   On computers with large amounts of RAM, the maximum cache size can be large enough that Vcache consumes
                   all of the addresses in the system arena, leaving no virtual memory addresses available for other functions
                   such as opening an MS-DOS prompt (creating a new virtual machine).


In addition I would get the newest drivers for everything and

  I would run the Start-windows update to make sure that you have the newest updates.

In addition Cleanup the startup stuff. In win98/Win ME/Win XP -  Do a Start - Run - msconfig, startup Tab , or for win95 , NT or win2k,
Download the Startup COP a free pcmag utility from
 Run it and it will show you everything that is listed in all the possible startup
                        places, and allow you to disable things one at a time until the problem is eliminated.
 A lot of probelms are caused by excess old baggage - programs that have not been properly  un-installed. Startup Cop will eliminate leftovers and un-wanted programs that you no longer want.
Older Antivirus programs and Norton Utilities have been known to cause problems
try disabling them also !

BTW :   Msconfig can also be run on Win95,  just copy the msconfig.exe from a Win98 machine.
You should only need systray and explorer in the startup on a win9x machine.

Update and run 2 good, updated antivirus program- Norton, McAffee etc.
 Then run SFC from the Start-run command, and have it fix any broken files.

ALso check into getting driver updates for ALL of your hardware, BIOS, VGA, motherboard etc.

Do a Defrag of all partitions from SAFE mode !

Make sure that each partition has at least 15% free space.

Check your swap file settings.

You may try doing a scanreg /fix from a DOS prompt.

You may try doing a scanreg /restore from a DOS prompt
and select a registry date from before the problem started.

 Check the IE version and try to do a repair from the add/remove in the Control panel - choosing remove  gives you a repair option.

 these are some tools that will benefit anyone trying to solve problems.

In Internet Explorer, go to Tools>Internet Options, click the Settings button, then the View Objects button and remove everything except the CV3 class file.

Now click the Advanced tab and check the box that says "disable script debugger"

Go to Start>Run, type msconfig, click the startup tab and uncheck Machine Debug Manager.

   I hope this helps
