This is weird enough.
At about every second time (maybe a little more seldom though) I start
up Win98 it suddenly, in the middle of booting (after loading the
desktop image), throws me into a blue screen with the following
"A fatal exception 0D has occurred at 0028:C0033A92 in VXD IFSMGR(01)
+ 000009A2. The current application will be terminated."
And then there's the any key/ctrl+alt+del prompt.
Sometimes, if I press any key, it continues to load and may throw in
an error message about rundll32.exe, can't remember what though. This
has sometimes appeared on its own, as well, but I think it would not
appear if the IFSMGR error would not.
Just what the hell is going on? I'm running a Celeron 300A on an Abit
BH6 with Win98 on a 840 meg FAT drive as master, with a slave 6.4 gig
FAT32 drive. 64 megs of memory, no network card, Hercules Dynamite
128, Pure3D, Gravis Ultrasound Extreme (not installed though, uses ESS
mode), a standard v.34 modem.
In my startup menu I have Quarterdeck's Smart Sweep / Internet Sweep,
an utility for making icon text backgrounds transparent and
WordPerfect 7's PerfectPrint.
I have no idea why this problem only occurs in about 50% of the cases.
PLEASE help me if you can in any way.
