    Hello Folks,
    I am hoping you could help me out. I have a windows 95 machine that intermittenly throws up on the screen:

    wm95
    This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persists...vendor.

    Wm95 caused an invalid page fault in module wm95.exe...


    Its my assumption that it has to do with windows manager. But i am not sure how to resolve the problem, because it doesn;t come up in any particular program (like IE5, word, or outlook). Even when the system is idle it will pop up.
    Thanks...
    steve

    "Windows Manager"? Is that an application that you installed?

    If not, do a find files for WM95.exe, right mouse properties and see if you can determine the origin of the file. Also, note the directory that it is stored in.

    I di a quick search for wm95.exe and all results pointed to it being installed as a part of Novell Client. Are you on a Network and using Novell?

    If not go into control Panel>Network and look at the list of installed components. Is Novell Listed? IF so, remove it and see if the messages go away.
