Well would need to know what the error message on your system (the blue screen).
Also, when exactly does it do it? anything in particular you run before it does that?

i think it says the following application needs to be terminated. It will just do it randomly.

If it were me i would reformat. Doesnt take very long, but it sucks if you dont have another hard drive to save all your goodies on.

This is just my opinion though.

if you reformat you will losse everything. Only thing to do is to make copies of what you want to keep by either burning them on CD or on a floppy disk. as for how to reformat, I myself want to do this too, and am not sure how that works... you could also just try reinstalling your Windows CD and see if that helps...

BSD (blue screen of death) is a common problem with Windows 98/ME. The solution I went with was to upgrade to XP.

Scan for viruses first. Reformatting is a last resort. I would also recommend an OS upgrade. Is it actually restarting your computer, or is it just shutting down a specific program?

Ony format as your last resource.

Next time you get the blue screen, note everything on a piece of paper and let us know. Many times, the problem can be an incompatibility betwen programs. In some cases, it may be memory stick fault or even a defective cluster on a hard drive. The possibilities are numerous, I need the exact error message and how often it pops up, and what you do right before it pops up.
