Is it overheating?

I would suggest putting Win98 back on and get all relevant updates.

1. Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans

2. PSU voltages

3. Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off

4. faulty memory stick try memtest click here

5. virus or spyware scan for both especially if shutting down with in a few minutes of switch on or internet use

6. driver conflicts especially grahics cards get the latest drivers for your equipment

this would suggest that you simply do not have enough memory as ME before you do anything with it will cater for about half of your resourses.
