If I start my computer in normal mode, I get blue screen error message:
"Windows Protection Error. You need to restart your computer. System Halted."
By process of elimination, I found computer will start okay in selective startup mode, with all items turned on except the line "device=*enable" in system.ini/386Enh. So I keep that one line-item turned off.
I'd like to know:
a) what that line-item controls.
b) how to fix it so I can boot in normal mode again.
Using Microsoft Windows Millenium OS, version 4.90.3000
1.2 Mhz processor, 768 MB RAM (limited to 512 MB by Vcache in system.ini)
I use AVG firewall and antivirus program.
Also shareware ad protection programs Lavasoft Adaware, Spybot Search & Destroy, Spyware Guard.
And commercial ad protection program SpySweeper by WebRoot, tho it's very slow and balks a lot.
I've been working on this problem in my spare time, since end of May 2006.
Two of the possibilities I've looked into, was that I turned off System Restore about that time.
And I also have tried to play a commercial DVD movie on my PC, and tried a half dozen
different video player utilities I downloaded. I've since uninstalled most of them.
