Well, if you you look into win98, i have posed a similar question but mine is for win98, on my travcels looking for a solution i came across a fix for the prob you have download, iosfix.exe from www.gateway.com
http://www.gateway.com/support/product/drivers/software/win95.html

this should do it, but i havent used it, as it states win95 only, hope this helps :o)

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?
