There are lots of reasons for a "Fatal Exception" error, and also "0E", OE means "Page Fault". Basicly this means that your program tried to access memory and had a problem doing it.
Another popular error is "0D" OD - "General Protection Fault" or GPF. Basicly your program has been corrupted in memory, and thus it needs to stop.
By the way, it's ZERO "E", not the letter "O", as if you really care anyway.
This could be due to a number of things, but mostly that your program or a DLL that the program uses got trashed somehow. This could mean it got trashed in memory also (the program or DLL), so when you check all your DLL's or program, they may seem OK on disk, but after they load and run a while, somehow they get trashed.
This can be your program trashing it, a freaking out DLL or other program you have running in the background, RAM problem, or who knows what.
OK, so all this sucks, what do I do?
With a smile, I say; Download a free operating system that uses memory protection so this doesn't happen, it's a real operating system, and it has been in use a long time now, download it free at corel.com .
That said, you should upgrade as much as you can. Get the latest (well tested) versions of the programs you use, and upgrade to win 98. Run only those things you need, press cntl-alt-del and see how much crap is really running, then get rid of the extras. These "cool" bells and whistles people add cause all sorts of problems.
Get something like norton crash guard, or mcafee's bomb protection.
If it was 1980 this would be OK, but there's better operating systems out there, as soon as people realize what a joke win OS is.
: Hard to tell, but re-installing windows works for me.
: : I get "Fatal Exception OE @0028:CO25.B26 in VXD VXDLDR (08)" when I try to shut down the computer.
: : Any help appreciated! Running Win 98 on a 256 clone, 64 K RAM. 76% resources free.
: : Thanks!
