I'd be very grateful for any insight into the problem I'm having setting up my neighbour's PC. He bought it at auction, it has a Via K7VMM mainboard and KM266 chipset, Athlon XP 1800 processor. I installed Windows 98SE without a hitch, but when I came to set up the mainboard, Windows encounters an error accessing the system registry, and says it will restart and repair the registry, but instead gets stuck in a loop of restarting and repeating the error. It also says that Systray has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. I've spent hours trying to figure this out but have got absolutely nowhere! Any help would be much appreciated.
