Hello... been posting my problem around and this site looks great.
Having a problem with my older system running Win98SE and startup.
Here are the scenarios: While the startup logo is displayed, there is an intermittent pause, then it restarts itself, logo comes back up and then the message about how Windows wasnt shutdown completely and gives you choices with Safe mode highlighted. I go into safe mode, do a complete shutdown, try starting up again, but the same thing happens.
When I chose 1. Normal instead of safe mode, the screen displays the message "Windows Protection Error. You need to restart your computer".
I performed AVG antivirus, Spybot, Adaware, Scandisk, and a defrag. No change.
I do remember that the wife was printing from Printmaster to a Canon printer via a USB port and the printer and PC locked up. Rebooting the PC is when the problem started. Hope this helps.
Can this problem be corrected by me or take it to a shop ?
