Wassup TSG, Quick question. Im getting this error.....
VMM(12)+00004C3C Error:OE:0028:C0283C3C
OK, now this is the proposed solution (just wanna know if this is what I should do). Boot to safe mode once I turn on the system press F8 and go to safe mode. once there press start then select run... type scanreg.exe Will this fix the problem? What will this do?

If you are able to boot into safe mode go to the start\run line and type in Scanreg /fix and hit enter. It would be better if you did it from the DOS Prompt.

The command should be entered as scanreg /fix

If you can get to Safe Mode, AND this is WinME, just go to start > run and enter it. You will be prompted to reboot.

If you cannot get to Safe Mode and this is WinME you will have to use a WinME startup floppy and run the command from the a:> prompt. You can also run

scanreg /restore

and choose a registry which predates the problem.

If this is NOT WinME (and this appears to be a WinME associated error, by the way), you must boot to a DOS prompt by tapping f8 on restart and selecting the command prompt. Win ME has no real mode DOS prompt other than the boot disk itself.

^^ the command line here is different but should result in the same thing if the registry is found to be corrupt.
