Fatal exception BSOD on shutdown

Specs: Windows 98SE, 892MHz CPU, 496 MB RAM
Every single time I shut down Windows 98SE, I get a fatal exception:

"A fatal exception 0D has occurred at 00E8:00007DBD"

I've used msconfig to selectively start the computer, and have discovered that if I set msconfig to have Windows start without system.ini or win.ini or both, my shutdown problems are gone.

In other words:
Don't run system.ini - shuts down fine
Don't run win.ini - shuts down fine
Don't run either of those - shuts down fine

PS: I've tried searching the net for solutions, but all I find are solutions for problems with this happening at startup--mine happens at shutdown.

When I CTRL-ALT-DELETE more than once, the PC won't restart, either. The screen just goes completely black, and I have to power off or reboot with the buttons on the box.

ScanDisk doesn't run when I reboot, either.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated!

was this right after installing windows?

Did you add all the MS patches after the install?

I can't remember atm what exactly gets listed in a 98se BSOD, but it should list the app name, or file that is causing the issue.

PowerMac 9600(1 ghz G4)
512mb RAM
50gb SCSI
ATi 9200 PCI

Windows 98SE has been installed on this machine since 2003, fatal eand the problem only began recently.

The only text that appears is what I wrote in the first post. Nothing about a specific program or file. Can't find anything about it in a Google search, either. :(

Sometimes if I start Windows in Safe Mode and then restart normally, it will go away. Sometimes if I play or work with videos, it will come back again.

Does this info help?
