Hi Marvin Grunt. This sounds like something is hogging the memory. Some software is bad for this, and Windows 98 isn't very good at handling it. When you restart the computer it clears the memory and so everything starts afresh. The problem may not actually be caused by Worms2, Ricochet or Pinball, it may be another task running in the background. Click on Start - Run, then type in the box "msconfig" (without the inverted commas), select the Startup tab and note how many of the programs are ticked. The only ones necessary for Windows to work are ScanRegistry, TaskMonitor, SystemTray and LoadPowerProfile (probably twice). There will also probably be an entry for your graphics card. You can untick any of the others to see if it is causing the problem, and put the tick back later if it isn't.
