To resolve this behavior, add the following line to the [386Enh] section of the System.ini file, and then restart your computer:

If the behavior continues to occur, increase the number of spare stack pages in increments of 4 (for example, 8, 12, 16).

NOTE: Each spare stack page requires 4 KB of memory.

To edit the System.ini file for Windows 95, 98 and 98se:
Click Start, click Run, type sysedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
Click System.ini on the Window menu.
In the [386Enh] section, type the following line:
MinSPs=4 alter this to 8 or 12 or 16

On the File menu, click Exit, and then click Yes to save the changes.
Restart your computer.
