In the past few days I have reformatted my HDD and re-installed most of my programs. Now, on rebooting/shutting down Windows(98se), I get a BSOD with "a fatal exception 0E has occurred at 0028:C003B9FB in VxD IOS(01) & 00000AB3" It does not happen every time, but pretty often-say 30% of the time. I have tried taking out all the start-up programs in Msconfig, but this does not stop the fatal exceptions. I have installed the Windows 98se shutdown patch. Sys file check comes up with nothing.
I recall having the same (or very similar) FE a long time ago, and seem to recall that a file or 2 needed adding or changing in the Windows\System\Iosubsys directory. I have searched the net (the exact message, and shortened versions) endlessly, with no results, though I'm sure I found the cure to the previous FE on the net.
Please can anyone help me with this?
Many thanks for any advice. And a very Happy New Year to all,
