I'm starting to get annoyed at Windows. SPAMEvery once in a while I get a B.S.O.D. and a message saying stack overflow a VxD possibly installed has resulted in an error when starting up. SPAMI haven't installed anything new. SPAMJust running 98 se with Zone Alarm and a power desk toolbar. SPAMNorton Antivirus and MSN messenger also startup but only Power desk toolbar is part of my start-up programs. SPAMIt really pisses me of because then my I have to restart. SPAMIt tells me to increase my minsps in system.ini but there is no such setting I have found. SPAMPlease help before I take out my vengance on my Laptop.

Humm... do you have all the latest updates? if so there may be some issues within windows that are deep down that are causing the problems. Perhaps its time for a reinstall?

Try the VxD patch here PCtech (http://freepctech.com/index.php) . Look for the VxD fix in the top downloads area.

The last time I saw "stack overflow" I think it was due to bad or incorrect configuration of RAM.

Actually it may have been something I did. SPAMI have a sound clip I cut and had it as the start up sound. SPAMIt's Dr Evil's speech on sharks with freakin' laser beems attached to their heads. SPAMBut I cut out Sea Bass and inserted "Welcome to Windows 98". SPAMJust seemed to fit better. SPAMOh well, I went with something shorter and so far It's seemed to stop the problem at least until the next time I turn it on.
