    Windows error

    My version of Windows 95 randomly displays a blue screen and I can't figure out why. But, after I reboot and run scandisk it seems ok.

    Could I have one of those viruses or worms or something? Does anyone else have this problem?

    for me this is expected behavior. when my wife used mswindows95 this happened on an at least weekly basis.

    Do you think Microsoft is aware of the problem? I should send them a email just in case they dont know... ;D

    there is a patch I think for this one. Hit the MS download page for 95. They should have a patch up still for this one. IIRC, Win95C is the only 95 that is exempt.

    format c: /u

    That should do the trick

    Maybe I just imagine I see the BSOD less often, but one thing seems to help, minimize the number of apps in the startup folder that put those little icons on the taskbar.

    no, its not just you Nerkey. That is the one thing that kills any Windows box REAL fast. having 85 little apps running in the background is overkill for any windows platform.
