That can be related to the EMM386.EXE /highscan (in the config.sys).
By default, windows setup removes /highscan switch. Check if the /highscan switch reappeared in your config.sys.
Apparently windows don't like DOS memory controllers. On my machine with Windows 98, I have removed autoexec.bat and config.sys. They are not needed unless you plan to run MS-DOS based programs (games) that need those files, but that can be done in PIF shortcuts.
