System Crash

A colleague of mine is having a problem with his PC

He is running win 95 and recently when he tries to save any work he has done on Word his system crashes giving him a Critical System error message.

He has tried Scan disk and Defrag but the system also crashes during these.

Any suggestions? Is it hardware or software?

Is this pc networked or is it a home pc.
If it is networked and its an OS2 server check the length of the directory name that it is saving into. More than 8 characters and this happens sometimes. I have seen this on several occassions with networked pcs.
