What version of Wiin 9x are you using and what version of IE are you using? Have you downloaded all of the updates?

hy, thank u for replaying my question
im using internet explorer 6,
what is win9x?
where i could find updates?


I was wanting to know what version of windows you are using. What I meant by "9x", was which one in the series are you using. Are you using Windows 95, 95sr1, 95sr2, 98, 98se (se=Second Edition), ME?
If you don't have your windows 9x updated you may not be able to. Microsoft has discontinued Windows 98 and ME support earlier this year.

sometimes when im watching movie on pc, the movie frozen,and start beeping
then i must push the reset button, or just restart my pc and its working again,do u think that is there any program who can fix that frozening

thank u for answering in advance

Without knowing the the "Beep" pattern, but knowing you are putting a load on your system and video memory I am leaning towards a bad memory module.
Download and use Memtest86 to test your system RAM.
Thank you for the PMs in reference to this topic. In the future please post your question and answers in the topic. Not because I don't want to answer your question, but because you cheat yourself out of the knowledge of our other members.
I will see your replies when you post them here. With in minutes after you do so.
I will be waiting to see what your memory test shows.

When was the last time you did any computer maintenance?
