Windows Protection Error

Everytime I shut down my Windows 95, I usually get a Windows Protection Error...
Close Windows and restart computer. press any key.

I'll tap the spacebar and the message "It's now safe to Shut down computer."  ANY Help would be much needed! Thanks

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Go to www.symantec.com and get Norton CrashGuard. Then when u want to shut down the computer (Why would u want to do that i do not understand :-) ) it can tell u alot of info, as an example what application caused the error.
  Then when u get a error message the Crash guard can tell u what was wrong and u can reinstall the faulty driver/application. Another option (which i hope, and think, u have allready done is to run the Scandisk. It is really quite good.
  The CrashGuard is shareware or freeware. I got it on a magazine CD. a couple of months ago. It have saved me alot of troubles so far. Thinkit is going to be included in the next version of Norton Utilities.
  Another tought is to when u get the error message press CTRL-ALT-DEL and see what prog are having a problem. U can even try to press if once when u just rebooted to see what applications u should have there and once when u have got the error message to se if there is difference. The missing application should be the faulty one

good luck.
