do you ever get to the normal windows screen? if not then you should probably just reinstll windows. what are your specs? if they are decent then i would recommend upgrading to xp anyways.

yeah I'd also recommend upgrading to XP (or even windows 2000) since windows 98 is unsupported and obsolete now. I don't know why you're getting those blue screens, when I had 98 I used to get them alot too and never knew why.

you got the blue screen of death so much because windows 98 is a crap os lol. seriously get windows xp! the requirements arent that steep at all... i install it on a laptop with 64mb ram and like 333mhz p1 processor and it ran halfway decent.

If you can't afford xp or 2000 which happens just reformat your hard drive and reinstall 98 or use a restore disc or boot up your computer and go into safe mode run a few virus scans see if you can find the problem like that.

i have to agree w/all the above ^^ , if you stay with win 98, just stay away from the internet, if it's just for playing video games, that good.

if and when you can, i would move up to windows xp, it will be 500 % more stable than win 98.
