When I use MSIE to come to this site, the browser ends up stuck, that is I can't close it, it hangs up and I can't kill it. I must reboot to clear the thing. So what is it about this site that causes this set of eveents?
I hope I can suggest a way to maybe help. Try shutting down the number of programs that start on startup. This will free up memory. I'm sorry its been so long since I have had windows 9X that I can't remember how step by step to do it. I do remember that you need to go to accessories, system tools, and????? I hope I'm on the right path and that this will help you. BTW all the programs you turn off at startup still can be started by clicking on the program in menu.
It might be his slackware computer is down and he has barrowed a computer or dug up an old one that he doesn't want to bother with installing linux. I have an old pentium 90 in the shed I thought I was going to have to use the other day and it has windows on it. Maybe he's in the same shape.
I think Larry Webb was on the right track. It's probably not the site considering the large volume of users who visit the site daily and don't experience problems.
Reboot and press Ctrl Alt Delete to get your system monitor to pop up. See what your CPU is running at and how much memory is being used. You may have a bunch of programs running in the background that shouldn't be.
Um, i havent ever used win 9x but if it has system configuration tool, or i might be completely wrong but, you run msconfig ? like "start - > run -> msconfig" and there you can mess with the start up programs. --- You might want to try a Windows Forum.

Although as jeremy mentioned there are many advantages to having it enabled.
