running win98 right?

boot into safe mode and see if it stops

then try diagnostic start up

enabling one thing at a time

hope it helps

hit ctrl+alt+del one time and see if any oddball stuff is running
you could also end task one at a time thru task manager

Diable all those crappy progs running on your taskbar, and check which progs are running in the background that you don't need.
