Windows defrag

Hi, I have just installed Nero 5.5 and inCD for a friend on his Win98SE machine (after fighting with PacketCD first to completely remove it).
After successfully installing that software we performed a routine housekeeping exercise, cleaning out all the usual places rubbish gathers.
After rebooting and testing Nero and CD-RW functions we rebooted again, then ran defrag.
Since defragging every reboot leads to a 0E exception error at 0177:BFF83BFC. The application affected is Windows and no vxd's are mentioned on the blue screen.
Hitting "any other key..." to continue allows the machine to reach the win98 desktop, but 50% of the time a CTRL+ALT+DEL is needed and the dialog shows "explorer" as not responding.
If anyone has any ideas what the 0177 series of errors refers to I'd be grateful.
Many thanks

  1. Seems like a system file as been corrupted during the defrag, you may need to reinstall Windows over the existing installation.

    Hope that helps.
