When I tried to open the Control Panel in Windows XP, I get a on-screen message "The exception unknown software exception (0x0eedfade) occurred in the application at location 0x77e73887. When I clicked OK, I get another message "Runtime error 217 at 0000BD68". Only after clicking "Debug" can I open the Control Panel. Does anyone know what is causing this problem and how to fix it? Thank you in anticipation. Edward

Start, Run, type in

SFC /SCANNOW

[note space before /]

and click OK.

Have your XP CD handy.

Windows XP scanning did not find any problems. However, this error is still present on opening Control Panel. Any further suggestion. Thank you. Edward
