Um, Maybe check for Win98 Updates. Did you do that. The best thing i would suggest is just to reinstall Windows. You won't loose any of your data and it should fix up the problem. Do you have the Win98 disk? You should make a backup copy of your reg and stick it on the hd before you reinstall windows though. This way once your done, you can restore your reg to the original point and won't have to worry about reinstalling stuff. I'm not really sure whether when you reinstall, if it wipes the reg out or not. Another thing, did you think about restoring the reg. You might of picked up a bug in the reg and need to do a restore. To do this, go into dos and do: scanreg/restore. Good luck
Let me know what happens

Thanks for the advice. Do you think you could tell me a little more about reinstalling Windows. I've never done it before and I would really hate to lose anything I have on my hard drive. I also did updates and that didn't help.
Thanks for your advice,

Start in safe mode
start > run
Go to the startup tab and uncheck everything except for:
Load Power Profile (two of them)
and scheduling agent
Go to the win.ini tab, WINDOWS section, and uncheck
Uncheck everything in autoexec.bat and config.sys tabs
Does the problem repeat ?

Thanks for your advice. I followed your advice and yes, the problem does repeat. I do not know if it matters, but while I was in the startup tab, task monitor was not there, and in the win.ini tab, run= was not there. Anyway, nothing has changed.
