    divide overflow error

    I am currently getting a divide overflow error when starting WIN ME. System hangs up. This causes me to restart in Safe Mode, Shutdown and then Reboot. A search of Subject revealed it could be a Turbo Pascal "divide by zero" error or a virus. I am virus free and do not use Turbo Pascal. Although these are (were) old postings.
    Would appreciate help. Thanks.

    Re: divide overflow error

    A divide by zero error is just that. How can you divide by zero?
    Usually this is from an older program that was written in Pascal code ( or any of the older coding) and then has become corrupt. If you have any older apps installed, I would try to disable or not use them, (one at a time) then see if the error still appears. Good Luck.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Try doing a selective startup -- eliminate some of the things that start when you reboot. Alternatively, reboot using a Bootlog Text -- and then review that after you have a failed reboot. Hopefully you can find the offending program.
