I am not to sure what to do or what is going on, but in the last day i have probably had to restart my computer over 100 times. I change some settings so that it prompts me to Log In when i reboot so the Network would work properly. However now almost everytime it gets to the screen and I press 'okay' it hangs and i'm unable to do anything,
it will not let me press cancel either
and if it does end up making it past there, without freezing in 2 seconds, and boots normally it will freeze within 10 mins. Does anyone have any idea as to what's going on or how to fix it? thanks for hearing me out
BTW, i'm running Windows 98 (not SE)
thanks again

Try removing and reinstalling the Client for Microsoft Networks. Some times you need to reinstall the Networks properties as they can become corrupted over time.

You will need your 98 CD, and of course you always have a boot disk just in case. You can also get what drivers you will need to reinstall from C:\Windows\Options\Cabs if you have the 98 cab files there. Boot into Safe Mode and go to your Control Panel and open Netwok Properties. Highlight Client for Microsoft Networks and Windows Family Logon and click remove. If you are prompted for the 98 CD browse to the Cab files.

After rebooting open Network Properties and click Add, highlight Client and click Add. Highlight Microsoft and highlight Client for Microsoft Networks. Click have disk and browse to C:\Windows\Options\Cabs first or if not present then browse to the CD and start clicking OK. If you want to try this first for practise you can get to this point now (in Safe Mode) and instead of clicking Ok you could just Cancel your way back out. Cancelling back out has the added benefit of "refreshing" your Client software and may just solve the problem.
