    Really your pc is just to slow, but here are a few things that will help atleast a little.

    1 - Run disk defragmenter, its something that a lot of people forget about but it can speed your system up once its been run.

    2 - Remove your temporary files. In 98 the easiest way i fouund was to click on dosprompt then type "deltree *.tmp/s" without the speach marks.

    3 - Remove temporary Internet files. Again, this is something a lot of people forget about and can speed your system up and free up some valueable drive space. I havent used win98 in a very long time so u will have to figure out how to do it.

    These simple things should be done on a regular basis, I personally tend to do them every 2 weeks at least. They really can make a difference.

    Your problem with IE would best be fixed by going to Microsoft.com and updating it provided they still support windows 98, like i said i havent used for ages so i have no idea.

    Hope that all helps. Rik.
