Try this:

Boot Windows 95 in Safe mode or to a command prompt.

Perform one of the following two steps:


    - Edit the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files and disable any
      references to Smartdrv.exe. To disable a line, type "rem"
      (without quotation marks) at the beginning of the line.


    - Rename Smartdrv.exe to another name.

Restart your computer normally.

What have you installed lately? Any types of software or hardware, preferably a scanner? When did it actually start happening and what did you do if anything before it occured?
