Microsoft Virtual Machine

After recently downloading Microsoft VM, I invariably get a blue fatal error box whenever I try to shut down, and on occasion when I boot up. How do I fix?

Be Sure that you don't have any
files in your : WINDOWS\TEMP
directory... if you do then delete
all the files inside WINDOWS\TEMP,
restart your computer and try to
install MS-VM again...

hope this helps...

Dennis:  Yes, it says I have an error in "Kernel32.dll" (looked it up--I have 2 with that name)
That's a start. Try and recreate the error and not the entire error line and write it down and post it here. Accuracy counts!
