Sound like you may have a hardware problem. Sounds like it may be a hard drive or possibly that overclocked CPU. You might try doing a clean install of the OS with a format and that may solve your issue.

There are two problems here.
WinMe is slower than Win98SE.

Check the BIOS to make sure that the UDMA66 is turned on for the hard drive.

Errors from overclocking, result in crashes.
This is not an overclocking problem.

This is a hard drivetranfer rate problem.

RAMDISK is used for fast retrieval of temporary files.
RAMDISK will not help you for this problem.

:
Do you have a standard IDE cable to the hard drive? or do you have a UDMA100 cable to the hard drive?
Can the motherboard do better than PIO-4 transfer rate to the Hard Drive?
If not it may be necessary to get a Maxtor/Promise UDMA100 PCI card.
They were giving them away, as a promotion, here in Texas, but that offer has expired. (ended)
