Select all the following which can help to do this:
    1. use the latest versions of himem.sys and emm386.exe
    2. run the latest version of DOS
    3. add more ram

    [GPF tips: sometimes errant applications will add giberish characters to win.ini and system.ini at the end of the file Also, sometimes it helps to upgrade the PC's bios. Finally, you may want to defrag the hard drive(backup everything first!), and then change your swap file from temporary to permanent. If you are still having alot of GPF's you may want to run Norton's extensive memory checking utility to see if you have a bad memory chip. This test can take hours to complete And as always, don't forget to check for a virus!]
