    Default Windows 95 shutdown problems

    I am trying to solve a shutdown problem with a windows 95 machine. When we shut down it comes up with a message in saying
    'Windows protection error
    Press any key to continue'

    When a key is pressed it shuts down ok, we tried booting in safe mode and the machine would shut down properly so I'm taking a guess that it is a software/ possible hardware conflict.

    Got any answers?

    opps, the error message actually reads as follows,

    'Windows protection error. You need to restart your computer
    Press any key to continue'

    Sam H, Are you running Norton AntiVirus v4 or v5 by any change?

    Cheers, Babe.

    Sam H, Ok of course my last post should have said "... by any chance?".

    Now have you had a look at the following MS KB article:
    Troubleshoot Windows Protection Error Messages

    Cheers, Babe.

    Nope, it does have win fax pro on it though, which includes live update.
