    When I switch computer on, A scandisk starts & then stops on 27percent then the following message appears--- An internal stack overflow has caused this session to be halted. Change the stacks setting in your config.sys file and then try again. I would greatly appreciate ANY help at all in curing the above problem. R.S.V.P. Mick.

    I suggest that you try to reboot & as it starts to bootup hold the shift key down & let it open in safe mode... let the scandisk run.... all the way if it will...
