Have you checked the setup files with "sysedit" in your c:\windows\systems directory?  When you open that program, check your system.ini file along with the win.ini file.  Do a search for the string MTRR.VXD and comment it out with a ";"

BTW, sorry about these two posts, but I want to make sure that I'm not missing out with the above as just a comment

Experts Exchange keeps the ?'s on line for a period of time to permit follow-on dialogue. The protocol issue should be obvious to you and should not be addressed on the customers page.
