Win Protection Error while initializing device

  Severn Bore 15:11 14 Dec 2006

A friend is running a Win ME PC, so it is not in the first flush of youth. She now cannot start it as during the boot process it comes up with a blue screen stating "Windows Protection Error, while initialising device PERF. You need to restart your computer. System Halted".
I have been unable to find anything in the forum and would be grateful if anyone can offer advice on this?
