experience was always that running out of resources became an issue long
before memory (RAM) caused problems.
Just to make sure either or both is not was causing your problems - can you
confirm that you have Resource Meter (from the Win98 distro) and/or one of
TClockEx, ProcessMonitor, TaskInfo2003 (all freeware or light nags - just
Google) running to show whether it is a shortage of Resources causing your
It would be worth retrying what ever causes your failure symptoms under a
*very* light load. ie - close all other apps and make sure nothing not
required is being invoked at startup and see if you get the same or

Favorites list that includes all the files you want to be able to access and
use QuickList to select from for the file/files you want to work on?
SysTray icon for Notetab: When I was using Win98 I always had problems
getting this feature to work consistently too - others have reported similar
problems. Usually clicking the option off/on (OK'ing between each in
Options) seems to help but long term I found it more useful to just leave
Notetab on the taskbar.
This also allows you (if you want to open a file from Windows Explorer) to
drag the file(s) on to the TaskBar-Notetab button - wait a second or two -
Notetab window gets restored - drop it/them into Notetab. Note: I didn't
discover this till after switching to Win2K so I'm not posiitive it will
work in Win9x
Long term: Get Win2K or WinXP - the time you save in not having to reboot
never mind the other advantages will be so gooood :-)
