It gives a message: Suwin, general protection fault-To continue click ignore, but it freezes and I have to close it. Can you help me, I paid $90.00 for this back in May 98 and haven't been able to enjoy the upgrade capabilities:-(

To kyaz,before upgrading,have you turn off the virus detection function in yr bios CMOS setting.Also Disable any virus protection function while booting in your autoexec.bat. Also  disable the power management in suspend mode as win98 not supporting suspend/hibernate function of bios setting. If still not solved, will lead to further adjustments.  Pslh

Kyaz, the next time you log on here, would you post the contents of your config.sys and autoexec.bat files here. You can do so by using copy and paste.

Just checking, but are you updating Windows 3.x or Win 95? And, if Win 95, are you updating from withing Windows 95 or from a Dos prompt?
