could be memory, Programmes running etc etc

please advise what programmes you have running and how much memory you have installed

you have installed to run in the background could cause this, even a simple clock (not the one already in your taskbar). As Madboy says, shortage of memory could be the prob. Let us know your system details and what you have installed.

Also include the make and size of your CPU, (Processor), as this may have an effect on your system, if it is not powerful enough to run your internet connection + other programs that are running in the background. J.

thanks for your comments boys.
I have 191Mb of RAM
and my proccessor is : Celeron 633MHz(128Kb) 64MB
i had been running Kazaa in the back ground but even after closing it i still get the problem.
i have noticed that it doesnt happen until i use internet explorer. Is IE 6.0 ok to use with windows 98SE.

IE6 is fine with 98se. You mention Kazaa, do you have a virus checker running while you are on the net?

Press, Ctrl/alt/delete keys at the same time, and a window will come up, informing you of how many programs are running in the background. Post back and let us know. J.

DJohn thans for your response but i think i have found the cause.I had picked up a virus 'worm_KWBOT.C' Once i got rid of the virus things seem fine now.
Many thanks
