For the last couple of weeks I have been experiencing frequent crashes with the following error message "An exception OE has occured at 0028 : C1457FDB in VxD DNSVXD (01) + 00000D2B. This was called from 0028 : C007F3F0 in VxD NDISWAN (01) + 000010A0. It may be possible to continue normally... If I then press any key as instructed, system appears to recover, but no incoming internet bytes are received, and then it just hangs, and I have to power down to do a restart.
I raised this problem in this Forum when it first happened and can get things back to normal by getting into DOS and scanreg /sfc, but have done that three times this evening so far ...
Windows 98SE, IE6 with latest Security Update, Norton Antivirus and Firewall, with updates done every day, Adaware and Spybot both installed and updated regularly. BT ADSL USB Modem used for internet access, and this appears to be connected to the VxD NDISWAN which comes up in the error message
Put the Windows98 disc in comp stop it running the in run box typ SFC and run it to check for corrupt files, if that does not work I would try loading 98 over the top as this will not harm your files. But if you do, make sure that all Anti Virus is disabled as Windows boots several times when loading
