MRPEXE.EXE problem with kernel.exe

I had Win98 installed with no problems until yesterday.
I installed some software(HDTach 2.52) that asked me to reboot.  I clicked ok and walked away.  Several hours later I returned.  My monitor shut off so I could not see the screen, but I hit enter a couple of times knowing that would get me past the network login screen ( I have no password on my network logon since it's a home network -netbui between 2 PC's).  Once the monitor warmed up, I had a box asking for my Windows password.  I never set one up, and never was prompted for one before!  I tried canceling out of it and got a MPREXE caused and illegal.... msg.  Under details it was blaming Kernel.exe.  I booted off floppy, deleted my .PWL file and rebooted.  Same thing.  I tried to log in as a different windows user - same problem.  I tried booting in safe mode, and I lock up before I get the network or windows logon.

I have read on other sites that it was sound card related, but under details, it blames Kernel.exe.

The only other things I have done this week were installing  Outlook98, and Office97 patchs SR1 and SR2.

Since I can't even get into the Win98 GUI I am stuck to booting into Command Mode?  Any ideas?
Here's the system:
System PII 333
Diamond Viper 330 (using Nvidia's drivers)
SB AWE 64 Gold
Zoom V90 internal
Realtek (sp?) Ethernet card

Go to C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND
type at the DOS inside the COMMAND FOLDER, SCANREG/FIX.
this will let you get into WIN GUI again. then uninstall the software. the loggin should be skipped with the escape key.
if you can get into it. go to safe mode and uninstall the software
