Default SUWIN error with ME

SUWIN caused a General Protection Fault in module VERX.DLL
@ 0002:24AE

I am getting this error after the ME setup is about 30%
into the reinstall.
I am reinstalling ME because it is not booting all the way
into windows. it stops and starts a scandisk which never
finishes. I have manually ran scandisk after booting with
the startup disk and the scan found nothing wrong, but it
still doesn't complete the bootup after I cancel the scan.
When I examined Task Manager, it says "windows explorer
not responding" so I figured to fix the problem by running
setup again using the bootdisk, but it doesn't complete
the install.....HELP

Default SUWIN error with ME

VERX.DLL error
You appear to be attempting to reinstall Win Me over a system where a beta or
early version of Windows Media Player 9 had previously been installed without
having first removed it - not easy I know. Boot to DOS using a floppy and
delete or rename the file WMPLOC.DLL in the windows\system folder and then try
reinstalling Win Me. This should work and now allow you to reinstall Win Me
although you may later have some problems with WMP.

It is also possible that you had installed IE6 and this also needs to be
uninstalled before (re-)installing Win Me. If this is the case you might want
to have a look at MS KB 312451 - "How to Remove Internet Explorer 6 by
Reinstalling Windows" (http://support.microsoft.com?kbid=312451) and also KB
293907 - "How to Uninstall Internet Explorer 6"
(http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=293907).

If it is now too late to remove IE6 and after completing your re-install you
have problems due to the resulting version soup between the version of IE5.5
included in the Win Me setup and IE6 please post back and I or someone else
can give some guidance as to how best to proceed.
