I'm installing windows 95 with USB support to my system.  I  include the network client for Microsoft Networks in the Installation process, I get the message "Mprexe general protection fault in kernl386.exe at 0002:00007973" after the computer reboots. Then my machine freezes.  However, I can boot into safe mode, remove the client and all is well.

Just put "All Products" and "mprexe" into the search.

Make sure You have Mprexe.exe in windows\system.

USB, well that's a trouble maker most of the time. Can you live without it. Most Motherboards don't have the Bus Power to handle it anyway. You can remove that.
