Have you had WinNT previously installed?

What software did you install, did it happen as you were installing software, or was it like that all the time?

You might try reformatting the drive and then installing the operating system.  Deleted everything from the drive???

Your issue is with Norton 4.0.  Uninstall it and remove any trace of it from the registry.  Then remove the directory.  Norton has a bad tendancy to not like Win98 and NTKERN.VXD is one of the Win98 files that it can screw up.  After its uninstalled, try reinstalling.  (BTW: NTKERN.VXD is a Win98 file though and not NT)

These links may help you resulting from a search in the Microsoft Knowledge Base for Windows 98 Second Edition and Clean Install.  Aside from key information already provided you earlier; what is your Windows 98 Second Edition exactly?  This also helps with additional hyperlinks that may apply to your problem.

As asked earlier, it's helpful to know the exact error message around NTkern.

NTKERN.VXD is on the Windows 98 Second Edition CD .... here's where, in case you do have it on your system, but is incorrect version, corrupted, or the like; can use SFC to restore if you use and need it .... we don't use/run on our W98SE setups:

Contents of the Win98_54.cab File
Ntkern     vxd       195,238  4-23-1999 10:22:00p

---

Here's registry info on NTKERN for W98SE:

An issue is also with usb, do you have usb?  If so, remove and re-install.

Your problem IS America Online.

The LAST and latest version of AOL40 is 170.54. Some revisions earlier then this have had this NTKERN.VXD message.

You will have to reboot in SAFE MODE and uninstall AOL software.

Then reboot, I am sure this message wil not be there anymore and all will be fine.

When you said you uninstalled and reinstalled many times, you used the same disk right? Get a different disk, or order one.

Then even though it may work, once you have AOL installed on your puter, download and install AGAIN over the same directory path (wipe out the "a" in America Online 4.0a when it installs)

This will make sure you have the right revision of software. The revision will change with the online updates, but one revision varies from another on high high the updates will take you.

You have no control on the online updates, it is the revision of your software that looks for them automatically.

Good Luck
