The deal is I can't use the msdos icon on windows.  Whenever I do it comes back with an error.  

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be terminated.  quit all programs and then restart the computer.

This program encountered an invalid page exception.

Fault Location:  0028:C0075CA9
Faulting Component:  SYMEvent(02)+00003EF1
Interupts in service: None

When dos does run, the error will come up in a few seconds.

It looks like you are having a problem with your Norton products (Antivirus, Norton Utilities?)

If you are running third-party utilities on Win98, you need to be sure you have the Win98 compatible version...

Also, check out the System Information (in Accessories, System Tools) Utility that comes with Win98. Once in there, go to the Tools Menu and select Dr. Watson. A new icon will appear in the systray. Double-click it. Go to View, select Advanced (which can be set as the default in Options...). Dr. Watson will tell you if you've got anything going in the Autoexec.bat or Config.sys files that is causing errors in Win98.

You can edit the Autoexec.bat and Config.sys files in the System Config Utility, also on the Tools Menu in System Information.

sorry but I have already attempted that.  

I think I may has solved the problem.  I just cut off all contact to windows 98 from dos and the fault errror doesn't appear anymore.  It may be a simple solution but at least it is working.
