windows protection error

My mouse froze while playing a game and had to ctlr + Alt

  • Del and now I can’t boot to win98. I receive the error:
    Windows Protection Error You must restart your computer.
    I did this and the error comes up again and again. I can
    get into safe mode without mouse support. What can I do
    to fix the problem.


Simplest thing to do is to pop in your Windows 98 CD and reinstall Windows. One of the kernel files probably became damaged, and needs to be replaced.

For W98 you can run the system file checker from safe mode just put SFC in the run box.

Also turning off the computer & unplugging it for a minute & plug back in can do wonders. When you turn it on again, make sure EVERYTHING connected to it is on first, printers, modems, etc.
