Check your c:\windows\dosstart.bat file for a line that calls windows.
If present, delete the line.
Let me know if you need more.

Are you running any type of Win95 security on the workstation?

Check your autoexec.dos file and make sure there are no references to windows there also... In addition, make sure you have rights to "drop-to-DOS". ie if you are on a companies computer, you might not be able to do this...
