Boy, I don't know what you can do. You are pushing this computer very hard.
If it is a 33, then you are not using a co-processor. I would say that if you
must keep using this computer that you get a math co-processor and upgrade to
W95. This would probably run you around $200. My daughter has my old 66 and I
ran it with the same config as you. But it was the BARE minimum. I got an
idea of the technology, but that was about it.
Get to CU settings and limit your windows to one, maybe two for now and set
your receive and transmit speeds to around 20 each to keep the stress down.
It may work then.
