Blue screen error messages

i have just reformatted my drive and done a clean install of win98 and now i get a blue screen of death with the message “unable to write to discin drive C data or files may be lost Press any key to continue” This seems only to happen when i am connected to the net Any ideas? thanks

What’s your disc status? (partitions, brand, size etc)

it is a maxtor 10.8gb with only 1 partition
and only about 8 months old

Maybe a bit forward, but did you:

  • do a virusscan?
  • check for disc errors?
  • check your system settings?
