I am running windows 98. Sometimes when my laptop boots up it gives me the following error message: "Terminating thread due to stack overflow problem. A VxD , possibly recently installed ,has consumed stack space. Increase 'MinSPs' in SYSTEM.INI or remove recently installed VxD's.
I ran a Norton Live Update the previous day and did not install any new software. What does this mean?
