On shut-down I am now getting a message that reads:BACKTRACK MONITORFATAL ERROR (8205)CANNOT TAKE SNAPSHOT!This has recently begun. I was working with some installs at the time. It probably occured at that time. The programs I was working with were: MSIE 4.0, and Outlook 97, and MS Exchange.

Go to www.symantec.com and give their "Norton CrashGuard" a try. it is freeware i think. From if u can get a better error message what application is causing the error message. Then from there we can start tracking a good solution.

Good luck...Allways

Are you using Norton Utilities. Snapshot and Norton, sounds familiar.

You  probably have a program like windelete, some kind of uninstaller, antivirus, or whatever, that needs to create the log of changes done to your computer.  This program tries to run when  you shut down, but it cannot because the shutdown program prevents it from doing so.  If you are using windows 95, check what you have on the right part of the start menu where the clock comes up.  You probably have minimized program(s) there. Check the settings in each by either left or right clicking them.  One of them probably has some kind of log enabled.

If that's not the case (none of the programs you see minimized on the start menu near the clock in windows 95) then again, check your uninstaller, windelete, cleansweep, or some other programs' like this settings, if you are running any of those.  Check it with any uninstaller, not just the ones I have listed!

For your own information -With your direction I have tracked it down to an exe filecalled "Backtrack Monitor" which is part of the First Aid 97program.I will give you credit for solving the problem, However I cannot figure out how to correct the problem still.Thanks
