We get this error from different users several times a day (of course this is a "Blue Screen of Death" scenario. We have tried several unsuccessful attempts to correct it but nothing has seemed to work. We are using Win95 with Novell Client 2.5 & 3.1, GroupWise 5.5.2, Corel8, DocsOpen and IE4.0 as the main programs. The problem seems to be very random and we haven't been able to narrow it down to any app or function. Any ideas?

99% of the time this error is due to a memory malfunction. Memory is a very sensitive piece of equipment. If you put memory of 2 different types (EDO mixed with non-EDO). This will not show up in the initial on start memory test but it is a problemand memory causes very disturbing conflicts, sometimes not even allowing windows itself to start. Try adding memory of one type, or replace one of you memory chips if they are of the same access time and type.
Hope this helps,
regards, NICHOLAS.

Maybe you use overclocked processor. Check processor unit, or if you use non PC100 memory for frequency bus >66Mhz. Check you hardware.

More specific information is needed to analyse your problem. After the blue screen, do you get any "program caused illegal operation" type message with a "details" button? If so, post this so I can have a look at it.
The only advice at this stage is to disable any sort of power saving you might have.
IE4.0 can also cause similar problems as well as certain VGA cards. These would produce an "invalid page fault" error once you press a key (from blue screen) and it returns you to Windows.

the fact that you are using 2 different clients on the same network is scary! this could be an even bigger problem. the 2 clients could be conflicting with one another. try getting all workstations using the same 3.10 client and get the latest patch from novell for that client. also, you might be using cheap memory instead of some high quality viking memory. all of the previous postings that have some memory resolutions are all valid things to try.

From your info it's difficult to diagnose your problem. Are you using a virus scanner? if so, which one? Look in your registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VXD\Symevnt.
If this key exists, save it then delete it. Reboot your system and test it to see if the problem still exists.
