Hello... new to this site.
Having a problem with my older system running Win98SE and startup.
The system was running fine the day before.
Here are the scenarios: While the startup logo is displayed, there is an intermittent pause, then it restarts itself, logo comes back up and then the message about how Windows wasnt shutdown completely and gives you choices with Safe mode highlighted. I go into safe mode, do a complete shutdown, try starting up again, but the same thing happens.
When I chose 1. Normal instead of safe mode, the screen displays the message "Window Protection Error. You need to restart your computer".
I performed AVG antivirus, Spybot, Adaware, Scandisk, and a defrag. No change.
Can this problem be corrected by me or take it to a shop ? I noticed an earlier post about cleaning out the mainboard and checking device connections.
Any help would be great. The Mrs. is bugging me she needs the computer.
