I just felt the need to explain to my fiance that I'm at the Pit right now cuz it's in the best interest of our computer's health that I try to find answers to solve the problem we've been having. Well, it IS true! I haven't been to the Pit forum in ages, mostly because I spent the majority of my time here instead of doing things I should have been doing. I've missed everyone here. Uh oh, I'm being hailed away from the computer. Gotta go!
Thanks for the link, pacman. I'll check it out. No, Mouse, I didn't get anything with the computer. I don't happen to have any Windows 98 disks, either. The computer has 3GB or more memory. Should I just upgrade to Windows XP? I have the disks for that.
We recently acquired an old PC. It's a Compaq Presario 2250 with Windows 98. It has problems, and I'm trying to get the thing running smoothly again. I know that it has spyware and I wouldn't rule out a virus either. Anyway, when I try to shut down the computer, I get the following message on the infamous blue screen: A fatal exception OE has occurred at 0028:C02A0948 in VXD VWIN32(05) + 000012D0 What does that mean? Is there anything I can do about it? Should I bother to continue trying to clean up this computer? Thank you.
