Could be you are getting a bit short of memory or resources. If you are low on resources try shutting down all background progs by pressing ctrl+alt+del and stopping everything except explorer and system tray. You can see resources by going to system properties, press windows key+pause, and click on performance tab. Long time since I ran W98SE.

Are you leaving lots of windows open at the same time? Also music takes lots of CPU usage, what is the spec of your pc e.g. what speed, memory etc.

If you only have a 56K modem, streaming audio will be choppy as it cannot keep up with the transfer of the file.
