First start your computer in safe mode by pressing F8 during system startup. Then follow the steps outlined in this KB article:

Q192926 (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q192/9/26.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=Q192926&rnk=1&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=DRX)

Hopefully it will help. However the error your getting (OD= 13 in HEX) is a general protection fault that means a program is corrupted. Another thing you can try is booting to DOS and running "scanreg /restore" at the command prompt. This will let you restore an earlier version of your register.

Good Luck http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif
