Question 6200 on Win98se, "Windows protection error"

Good day all
Can anyone suggest why I'm getting a "Windows protection error. You need to restart your computer" message on shutdown (but not on reboot). It started after after installing a 6200 on Win98se.
Instead of the Win logo, the screen goes black and there's a white blinking cursor somewhere on it, + sometimes a "press any key" message and chaotic graphics. All this in white text on a black screen. On restarting, sometimes scandisk runs automatically, sometimes not.

I've removed the line:
display.drv=NVIDIA GeForce 6200
from c:\win95\system.ini - as recommended at
I've also cleaned up drivers in safe mode.

Amd Athlon 64 3000+ 2.0 ghz. Nv-81.98_forceware_win9x_english.exe driver
Same problem on two different mobos:
- MSI K8mm3 mobo with integrated VIA/S3G UniChrome Pro IGP Display adapter
- Asrock k8upgrade-nf3 nForce3 250
