Hi.Welcome to the forum.
A few thoughts and I'm sure others will chip in their ideas.
What programs do you have running?Do a cntrl/alt/delete to see currently active programs when you have this failure,if possible.
A running program may be the source of your problem.

Try running with only Explorer and Systray and see if you still have the failure.

64 mg of ram is a bit small and you may be running thin on resources.To see this %,right click on My Computer and then left click on properties to see % of resources available.

You might also want to look at available free space on your hard drive.

Also if you have not done a Defrag and Scandisk recently,it might be a good idea.Do this in Safe Mode to avoid interrupts in this process.

These are some high level things you can do to try and diagnose
the problem you are having and the results might lead to other areas that need to be investigated.
Hope this helps.
