Unable to boot Win95

I was unable to boot my PC in Win95. I tried both the safe and the normal booting and every time I was getting the following error:

A fatal exception 0D has occurred at 0157:BFF3FB22, the current application will be terminated.

then after I press Cntl-Alt-Del I get the following error:
An exception 0D has occurred at 0028:C004037E in VxD NTKERN(01) + 000068B6. This was called from 0028:C009B388 in VxD VKD(01)

I was not able to boot in win95. and I don't know what to do. I start having this problem after a couple of days of downloading IE5.01.

I checked the bootlog.txt file and I found the following errors:[00171EAF] Loading Device = C:\WINDOWS\SETVER.EXE
[00171EAF] LoadFailed     = C:\WINDOWS\SETVER.EXE

[00171F32] Loading Vxd = ndis2sup.vxd
[00171F32] LoadFailed  = ndis2sup.vxd
[00171F3A] Loading Vxd = vshare
[00171F3A] LoadFailed  = vshare

[00171F3B] Loading Vxd = vpowerd
[00171F3B] APM disabled by Device Manager
[00171F3B] LoadFailed  = vpowerd
[00171FFB] INITCOMPLETE = SDVXD  
[00171FFB] INITCOMPLETEFAILED  = SDVXD

and the last line in the log was
Initializing KERNEL

boot in dos prompt and look your C:\bootlog.txt file. It can, probably tell us a little bit more about what´s going on there. []

AS far as i can see, this problem is too serious to fix any other way than to install win95 again. As far as i can recall NTKERN has something to do with the USB ports, but the other errors is widely spread with Network and the kernel.
Try installing it into the same directory as the previous installation and have the drivers for your system at hand. By installing in the same directory, you will probably not loose your applications (i didn't), but you will have to install all drivers again.
good luck

Try to boot windows in step by step mode instead of normal or safe mode and remmember what did you install before the problem good luck

i have seen countless bugs reported as a result of installing IE 5.0,
though nothing as serious as this. but you may want to contact the microsoft's support sites for IE 5.0, i know theyve been getting some heavy traffic through there.

-Rename your windows and Program Files folder to windows.ORG and Program Files.ORG. Install Windows 95 in c:\windows

I would try this ,, boot up and just before windows starts hit f8 and go to C:
at C: type C:\scanreg/restore , a menu will come up and pick a date before you installed IE 5.01  and it should replace the registry with a copy before these problems began.........James

You have worked with win98 too long. :-)
This is a win95. It doesn't have scanreg.

Just a question,
Is your system over clocked?
