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

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.
