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.

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.
