Having Windows Protection Error?

Microsoft Windows 95
April 24, 2010 at 01:37:40
Specs: Windows 95
It's a processor problem if you just installed Windows 95. The Hardware Virtualization, more than two cores and clock speed higher than 1 GHz all cause problems!

If you just installed Windows 95, upgrade to at least Windows 98 SE which doesn't have the problem

However if you used Windows 95 and it just start displaying it, then it's a software problem.

Added hardware? Try it remove it.

And finally Windows 95 isn't supported and it's OLD. To get support upgrade to Windows 2000 and later

Previous discussions on that show the windows protection error for 95 and 98 FE with fast processors can probably be fixed with the NDIS upgrade. Check my # 1 here:


and its links and the discussion in the other postings there. The fast AMD processor fix as well as modifications for large ram are discussed there.

That is not a question. That is a statement. This is a Question and Answer web site. You should post this to another page.

Re #3.

It's quite OK to post information on this forum but it has to be useful and make sense.

Windows Protection error messages can occur under any of the following conditions:

* If a real-mode driver and a protected-mode driver are in conflict.
* If the registry is damaged.
* If either the Win.com file or the Command.com file are infected with a virus, or if either of the files are damaged.
* If a protected-mode driver is loaded from the System.ini file and the driver is already initialized.
* If there is a physical input/output (I/O) address conflict or a random access memory (RAM) address conflict.
* If there are incorrect complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings for a built-in peripheral device (such as cache settings, CPU timing, hard disks, and so on).
* If the Plug and Play feature of the computer's basic input/output system (BIOS) is not working correctly.
* If the computer contains a malfunctioning cache or malfunctioning memory.
* If the computer's motherboard is not working properly.
* If you installed Microsoft Office 97 and you are using the Novell Client 32 software.
