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?

To Avoid Reading ALL THIS!
To Be Simple not Complicated.

Click Start, click Run, type sysedit in the Open box, and then click OK.


Click System.ini on the Window menu.


In the [386Enh] section, type the following line:


MinSPs=4


Easy Right?!? :)
