Stop in the middle of booting...

This is most likely a hardware (HW) problem.
Boot the computer with minimum HW requirement, which means CPU, CPU fan, RAM(s), Video card, and HD. You may disable "Boot Floppy Seek" in BIOS. If you do not get the Protection Error (PE), then you knowthe HW you disconnected caused the problem. You then install one HW at a time to find which one is the bad guy.
If you still gets the PE, you need to replace one HW at a time until the PE message goes away. You MUST have known good spare part.
Start with the CPU, Motherboard (M/B), RAM, and then the Video card. These are in the order of the most likely culprits. In terms of convenience, start with the Video card, RAMs, CPU, and then the M/B. The hard drive is the last one to test. If you do not have any spare part, take it to the specialist and have him do the troubleshoot.

Just an after thought, if you installed a Norton Antivirus program (old version 4 or 4.50), make sure it is uninstalled.

You may have to remove "%20" without the quotes. Sometimes it appears after you copy, paste the link and hit enter key.

1) Was ME installed clean or as an upgrade?

2) When you say that at first it booted fine, do you mean the system worked completely?

Dump Me.
Opt for XP.
Boot from CD.
Do a complete Xp install.
