I had to reinstall WinME due to virii issues. Upon completion I am getting the blue screen of death for od : 0028 : 00000003. Ultimately this keeps from a final completion of setup. I've never had this issue before. This is not the only conflicting one, I just figured I'd shoot them down one at a time. Letís finish with this before we attack another. The might go hand in hand. Just so that you don't think I'm a raging illiterate idiot, I have read the postings on this board for relief. They have been of no help. I have disabled all the USB's in the device manager. This is of no help. The oddest part of this dilemma is actually this is not the only drive I have ME setup for on this computer. While deciphering the problems due to virii I set up another drive as the new master until this one was completed. I do not I repeat DO NOT have this issue on the other drive. Same ME install disk same computer same everything.

I obviously do not believe the problem has anything to do with the USB ports but I am obviously clueless. Any every and all help greatly appreciated. Can also be reached at lsi3992171@aol.com.

Thanks to any and all.

Thank you for your interest in my problem. I have disabled everything that I am allowed in device manager. I have even tried a selective boot through System Config Utility. I figured that I'd uncheck each box one by one till I could locate the error. Didn't work got the error each time I rebooted. I re-installed ME due to the virus I had was replecating and infecting exe files. Norton would quarantine and be unable to fix them. To beat the virii I changed files extensions and scanned to located the real imposters. I deleted the imposters. I t was only a select few that were dups of others. Once this was completed I changed the file extensions back BUT I lost several files due to the quaratine and ultimate deletion by Norton. This is why I had to re-install ME. I would have chosen a different way to import drivers and sys files had I know what was deleted. I didn't realize this would cause the drive to go nutty. Never had a problem like this with any other Windows OS. The other message error I was getting is OD 0246 015F47FB, which I have since learned is as a result of IE. I don't really beleive this but I'll try.

I must admit that there was no problem with the re-install originally. Once online Windows on it's own took me to the update page and I figured sure, no big deal right? I'll update and download security patches. Once all the updates had completed their download I started getting a "system busy!" blue screen. Then I re-installed again figuring their was a conflict that would be undone. All I had to do was agree to keep the older file being processed than the newer one. Wrong!

Does any of this help you? Any other questions as to my situation? Don't ask you know everything, even what I beleive to be trivial. I'm not tryng to be mean I just have nothing more to give in the way of information. Thanks once again for all your help and interest.

This error message is REALLY broad. It is usually associated with another memory error address message that you are getting. Therefore, I cannot really decipher it for you unless I see other error messages you have gotten previously.

Not sure about this virus thing. What virus did you have? Windows ME is designed to fix corrupt or missing system files every time it boots. Therefore, I am not sure why you had to reinstall the operating system.

In addition, I am not sure HOW you reinstalled the operating system. I have heard from a lot of individuals that have had issues with an over-install of a previous operating system (upgrade or not) and have had a lot of these generic error messages. If this applies to you, I would recommend removing your partition, format, and reinstall a fresh copy of Windows ME on the drive.

I agree with your assessment. I do not believe that it is hardware-related or a program that you have installed. I think the error message is being derived by something in the operating system. If I were to take a quess, you probably did the 'over-install' and there are conflicting settings in the registry (that was probably over-written) or the Kernel files were not changed. There are quite a few possiblities.
