|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
Run both - FATAL EXCEPTION AT SHUTDOWN.
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!
