    Formatted, loaded Win Me (no other apps yet). Wanted to get updates first. Everthing works OK, except just as the handshake with the server is completed I get the "Windows Protection Error"
    Shut down/Start up all ok. No viruses. Tried changing modem. Tried all the suggestions from previous postings and MS. Reformatted, reloaded Me.
    Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

    Try the latest update for your mother board - available from the Mfgr's website.

    Have you checked for IRQ conflicts, that is one of the more common causes of Protection errors.

    When you said you'd tried all from MS, I assumed you'd seen this, but if not, it might be helpful to review.

    faulty ram would be something else to look into. Do you have more than one stick you could swap out?
