First thing to try is to disable virtual memory, if it is running.
Second, increase the memory partition for VPC. It should have no less than
50MB if he's running Win98. Tell him to close VPC, then do a "Get Info" on
the file and increase the memory in the "Preferred Size" box to 50000.
The computer should have at least 88 or 96MB RAM to do this comfortably.
With virtual memory off, it will increase the amount of memory required by
the system and reduce the amount available for VPC.
This should at least eliminate that as a cause, if not fix some or all of

Trust the computer industry to shorten "Year 2000" to Y2K. It was
this kind of thinking that caused the problem in the first place.
