    WARNING! message

    I have Windows ME and every once in a while, I get a blue screen pop up telling me WARNING! Windows has either become busy or unstable. I have heard alot on here about "Blue Screen of Death". Is this what this means? I have scanned for viruses, used WinDoctor on Norton Utilities and it never finds ne thing. Could this be because I haven't done a disk defragment in a while?

    I agree with Netsyn, ME is one of the most unstable OS's I think has ever been put together. (Although I hear XP is getting pretty close) So.. do what NetSyn suggested and your problems will be gone.

    Some other things I can suggest is running scandisk, defragging, and.. bah.. just get 98se and be done with it.

    I do not have enough $ to buy a new operating system. Windows 98 Special Edition costs around $400. Could this be because I have not defragmented in a while?

    Yes, we all agree that ME isn't a very stable OS. But if that's all you've got (and can't afford anything else, even though Linux is FREE) then you have to look after it. As you yourself already suggested, defrag the harddrive for a start. Empty all of your temp and history files to free up a bit of space. Also, when I was running ME I found that by disabling System Restore performance improved greatly and the OS became alot more stable.


    You could also visit a few ME tweak sites to get a few extra stability improving tips..Good luck!
