When I boot my W98 system and try to login to the network the system blu screens and hangs. If I let it time out it starts up fine, but obviously I cannot access my network.My network used to work fine. Can you point me to a good trouble shooter to resolve the problem?

brettclarbour,
   Check if your network driver is corrupted.  Go to Device Manager and delete the network driver. Reboot and let Windows reinstall it.  Have your network driver disk handly.

If no joy, run a the system file checker.  If you don't know how to run it, see

Description System File Checker

If still no joy, install Windows over itself. You will not lose data, even though you should always back up your data.

Boot up with the Windows CD. If the CD is not bootable, boot up with a startup disk. If you don't have one, download one from www.bootdisk.com . Type setup or E:\setup , where E is your CD-ROM drive.

If you don't have the Windows CD, the system files may be in the CABS folder. From a:> type "c:\windows\options\cabs\setup" without the quotes and hit ENTER.

Best wishes, war1
