Windows 95 may stop responding (hang) if an over current condition is detected from a Universal Serial Bus (USB) device. Over current conditions can occur when a USB device is "hot plugged" (or plugged in while the computer is on) into the computer.


Windows 95 may not clear the over current status in the USB hardware. This causes Windows 95 to service the same over current condition multiple times.


This problem no longer occurs in Windows 98. To resolve this problem, install the current version of Windows. For information about the current version of Windows, visit
