Without seeing your PC it's hard to answer this but it sounds like you may have a hardware problem possibly with your modem check you have the correct/latest drivers for it.

Try these in the order that I put them.

Run Scandik

Run SFC you will need your Win98 CD in to replace any corrupt files

Empty Temp files

Run Defrag

And click Win Clean-up.

This should solve alot of problems.

Not shure where you have got to but having too much software on comp can cause your prob. Remove programs you do not use

thank you all for your help.
the answer to my problem was as suggested by gman.
I updated my modem drivers and this has cured my problem.
Thank you all once again.
