Had to reload software on my primary PC after I allowed the resources to get too low which corrupted some files. I slicked it and installed Windows 98 SE clean. Added all upgrades from Microsoft. The system still would freeze after a while. Found an obscure patch which fixed a conflict between the Gigabyte motherboard which runs a VIA chip on it and the Realtek 8029 network card. Get it at http://www.realtek.com.tw/htm/faq/faq_1-3.htm if you have the same problem with this particular hardware configuration.
