If i can get back on line tomorrow ill read your responses

here is my problem my registry keeps getting messed up no i am not installing anything new and no i have not bought anything new that i added. I have run both inoculate it and mcaffe antivirus and both found no viruses. Here is my set up Athalon 900mhz on a gigabyte ga-71xe motherboard 256 meg of ram. my cards are as follows sound blaster live mp3+5.1 pci,Voodoo 3 2000 pci, c-net ethernet card pci. I have a maxor 30gig hd a creative labs 52x cdrom a acer 8X4X32 cd-rw. whats happening is i fresh install win 98 install all the device drivers for all the above reboot everything works fine within 2-5 reboots i start getting "cant find file" errors mostly in the vmm32 directory. then 1-5 reboots later i get the blue screens of death. I try and restore registerys and for a couple of reboots that works then im back to "cant find file" errors then blue screens of death. Sometimes even restoring an old registry doesnt fix the problem and i am stuck re-installing win 98 (ive installed it atleast 5 times this weekend) Any idea on what is happening??? (I have downloaded the current updates after each install from microsoft) as an addemdem sometimes when i boot up i get"error in registry windows will now close and run registry check" when it reboots there is the blue registry rebuilder screen and that says it found the problem and fixed it or it restores an old registry file fixing the problem but when i re boot after that i get solid blue screens of death. mostly in the vmm32 files and explorer. I have tried and direct copied from the cab's on the win 98 cd to copy over the old files that still doesnt work
(i know there are alot of reboots but im trying to stress test each install to see if it keeps happening)

it could be the drivers for your hardware, try a fresh install, just the drive(s) ram, cpu, and video, then install drivers til it crashes. that will be the one to look for, a resource conflict, or the drivers are doing it, try installing your cards until this crash happens, then you can start the troubleshooting.
