Certain terminate-and-stay-resident programs (TSRs) and device driversare known to cause problems with Windows 95 Setup. These are classifiedas "dirty" or "deadly" TSRs.
"Dirty" TSRs or device drivers are known to cause problems in Setup,but not necessarily to cause it to stop responding (hang). If Setupdetects a dirty TSR or device driver, it warns you that there may beproblems and recommends that you disable the TSR or device driver beforeyou continue. You can often continue Setup without disabling the TSR ordevice driver.

"Deadly" TSRs or device drivers are known to cause Setup to hang. IfSetup detects a deadly TSR or device driver, Setup stops and instructsyou to disable the TSR or device driver, restart your computer, and thenrun Setup again. You cannot continue until the TSR or device driver isdisabled.

The following tables list known dirty and deadly TSRs and device driversthat are detected by Setup:
